A message from Providence Alaska’s Children’s Hospital

Kendall Team,

We can not tell you how truly thankful and blessed we are for your partnership to get stuffed animal creatures to kids receiving treatment and care at Providence Alaska Children’s Hospital! Our amazing Child Life team shared a photo and story from this past weekend of a sweet patient, Lucas.

“I wanted to share with you this sweet picture from one of our pediatric patients who came through the Emergency Department. This patient got to cuddle Bear Kin during his port access and enjoyed reading the accompanying books with his dad after his treatment. This donation brought so much joy to this kiddo and helped him cope with his ED visit.

Thank you so much to Kendall Auto Alaska for this incredible donation!! Patients, families, and staff greatly appreciate your generosity and the positive impact it is making on kiddos who have an illness or injury. It is truly remarkable to see a child’s face light up when they are given one of these adorable stuffies. Priceless! 🙂 “

Thank you for bringing JOY to Providence Alaska Children’s Hospital! 😊 We could not do it without you and the amazing partnership!! You are all community superheroes by putting smiles on kids’ faces and warming their hearts. THANK YOU!!!

To our team,

I am beyond grateful for the truly outstanding show of support our team at Kendall Auto Alaska has shown to Providence Alaska’s Children’s Hospital and The Children’s Miracle Network! Together with your amazing support, we were able to raise,


That is an absolutely remarkable show of your heartfelt generosity to kids in need! With this display of your teamwork, we are the single largest donation of support items the Children’s Hospital has ever seen!

I am humbled by your participation and so proud of everyone! This just goes to show that when the community we serve needs us Kendall Auto Alaska answers the call and goes above and beyond!

The Children’s Hospital needed 900 emotional support friends for every child going through a traumatic injury, cancer treatment, NICU & PICU. With the amount we raised, we will be able to provide them with over 1200 emotional support friends that will carry them through May of next year.

I can’t tell you how much this means to me and the hospital! It brings me great joy to know every one of those children will get a snuggly new friend because of you!

With all my heartfelt appreciation, Thank you,


Kendall Cares, Alaska
