Kid’s Place

Kid’s Place

Created in 1997 by Assistance League Triangle Area, Kid’s Place, was a single room created as an oasis for kids being treated at Raleigh’s WakeMed emergency center. Now the program has expanded to several locations throughout the Triangle providing various comfort items to children who come to the Emergency Department for treatment. The committee delivers these comfort items to each of our facilities upon request to maintain needed supplies.

The primary purpose of the program is to provide comfort to children and their families during a very stressful time within emergency department facilities.
We supply the following:

  • Stuffed teddy bears for comfort (with Assistance League Triangle Area t-shirts)
  • Children’s Books
  • Flavored Chap Ice and Play-Doh
  • Treasure chest filled with items for children including toys, stickers, crayons, colored pencils, bubbles and coloring books”
  • Underwear and special request items such as sensory items for children with special needs, books in both Spanish and English,
    coloring books and toys showing diversity by color and gender

  • The Kid’s Place committee continues to receive positive feedback from the hospital staff for our contributions.
