Donations to Maria Fareri Children's Hospital made through the Peter Pan Birthday Club will help meet the needs of critically ill and injured children at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital, the advanced care pediatric facility for New York's Hudson Valley and Fairfield County, Connecticut.

 

To help you organize your child's birthday, we will provide you a "Peter Pan Party Pack".  Materials in the package include but are not limited to:

  • Decide whether your child will make a monetary donation to Maria Fareri Children's Hospital or donate gifts via a provided wish list.
  • Distribute invitations (provided by the hospital or your own) accompanied by either a provided wish list or donation envelopes.
  • Enjoy your child's birthday celebration!
  • Arrange for the delivery of gifts and/or donation envelopes.

Additionally, you may register your child as a national Peter Pan Birthday Club member online. Maria Fareri Children's Hospital at Westchester Medical Center has a partnership with the Peter Pan Children's Fund, a national organization that encourages philanthropy by kids, adolescents and adults in support of children's hospitals. The Peter Pan Children's Fund encourages children to share their philanthropy experiences via cards, drawings and photographs.

 

After completing a short online application, the Peter Pan Children's Fund will send an order of Peter Pan Crest Pins and an official Peter Pan Birthday Club certificate to your child.  In addition, the Peter Pan Children's Fund will make an additional $100 donation to the Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy Department of Maria Fareri Children's Hospital at Westchester Medical Center in your child's name.
