Variety - The Children's Charity

Hospital visits can be scary for children and their families, especially when the visits are urgent and unexpected. Thanks to Variety’s support of the Social Work Emergency Response Fund, families facing unexpected costs associated with their children’s hospital stays are able to get the support they need.

Since 2012 Variety’s support of this fund has benefited hundreds of families, covering costs associated with parking, transportation, groceries, prescriptions and more. This helps to relieve families’ stress and allows parents to focus on what’s most important – caring for their sick child. Knowing their children are getting the best medical attention at the hospital while having Variety’s extra support also gives families the comfort of knowing they’re not alone.

BC Children’s Hospital and Variety enjoy a strong partnership that goes back to the hospital’s beginnings. Since the hospital opened, Variety has supported BC’s children and families by funding specialized medical equipment to help the hospital be the best it can be.

Thank you, Variety, for being there for families across the province when they need support the most.
