Meet our Committees

Footprints has three committees that play an important role in keeping Footprints fun and updated both inside and outside of the units! From making kits for the unit to organizing events such as our annual Pediatric Illness Forum, they are an essential part of our team.

This includes...

  • Making newsletters throughout each semester 

  • Putting together decoration kits for the patients’ rooms​

  • Making technology guides and trainings for members

  • Working to get local restaurants to donate food or sponsor meals for employees and families on the unit
