Midwest Family Lending has chosen to support Variety – the Children’s Charity of Iowa in the month of December and we encourage you to as well.
Caring for a critically ill child is difficult; mentally, emotionally and financially. The Compassion Fund allows front line social workers to identify needs and distribute funds immediately, providing much needed relief for families.
Variety partners with Iowa hospitals to help critically ill children and their families by providing comfort, care and fulfilling immediate needs such as:
A gas card for frequent travel to appointments
Meals for a parent who spends weeks at the hospital
Payment of immediate bills such as phone, heat or electricity
A birthday cake for a child who will spend their special day in a hospital bed
Care for siblings when parents need to stay with their ill child
