YNHCH Wish Book 2023

Wish Book

Dear Friends, On behalf of the Office of Development at Yale New Haven Hospital, I’m excited to bring you the latest Wish Book, filled with gift ideas that will bring a smile to a child in the hospital. It’s not easy to find just the right gift for someone — something you know the recipient will love. But every single item in this book is 100% guaranteed to be a success! How do we know? Because these are items our pediatric caregivers — and their patients and families — have asked us to ask you for. So whether you choose a crib mobile to stimulate a baby’s vision, a cuddly stuffed animal for a toddler to hug, or an iPad to help an older child keep up with missed homework — you can be absolutely sure YOUR gift is just the right gift. No one needs your kindness and generosity more than a sick child in the hospital. So please pick out a gift — or two or three — from these pages, and bring a moment of joy to one of our youngest patients. I promise — they will so grateful! And so will our entire team at the Office of Development. With heartfelt thanks,

Stephen M. Jakab, CFRE Vice President, Development Yale New Haven Hospital
