Jones International University® Donates Money to Children’s Hospital Foundation for Holiday Shopping

Donation will go allow children in
Medical Day Treatment Program to shop for themselves and others during holiday
season.

(Denver, Colo.) –
Jones International
University®, Ltd. (JIU®)today announced that it will donate $3000 to the Children’s Hospital
Foundation of Denver’s Medical Day Treatment Program.  In 1978, Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation was
formally established as a separate charitable 501(c)(3) organization dedicated
solely to advancing the mission of Children’s Hospital Colorado. JIU’s donation
will provide $100 shopping cards to each of the 27 participants in The Medical
Day Treatment Program (MDT).  Any
additional funds not utilized for the gift cards will be used to purchase
supplies for The Medical Day Treatment Program classrooms.  Each child will have the opportunity to
utilize the gift card to shop for themselves or to buy gifts for family
members. 

“We
at Medical Day Treatment are incredibly grateful to Jones International
University for their generous donation,” stated MDT Program Clinical Director
Emily Edlynn, Ph.D. “Because of their generosity, our kids will be able to
celebrate the holiday season by enjoying shopping for their loved ones. Many of
our children will be able to give to their loved ones in a way they would not
have been able to do without this support."

The
Medical Day Treatment Program was initiated in the fall of 1991. This unique
program is a collaborative venture between the Children's Hospital Colorado and
Aurora Public Schools. This program provides an educational placement
alternative for children whose needs are too complicated to allow them to
attend regular school. Children are able to continue to meet school
expectations in an environment that provides the medical and emotional
interventions they need daily.

 “We are excited to support the children at The
Medical Day Treatment Program through the Children’s Hospital Foundation,”
stated JIU Chancellor Milt Goldberg. “At JIU we believe education is of the
utmost importance and that everyone, no matter the circumstances, deserves the
opportunity to receive a great education. 
The kids enrolled at The Medical Day Treatment Program have overcome
many challenges, all the while, making their education a priority. We hope we
are able to brighten the holiday season for each child in the program and their
families.”

The
Children’s Hospital Foundation seeks to expand skilled and passionate care
through focused growth in key programs throughout the hospital. “As the only
nonprofit children’s hospital in the region, we depend on the support of the community
to further our mission of caring for and curing children,” said Monique Bronner,
Senior Communications Manager at Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation.
“Caring for children during the holidays presents a unique challenge. Thanks to
the thoughtful partnership of supporters like Jones International University,
we’re able to spread joy to our patients and their families as they traverse
their medical journeys this holiday season.”
