Our mission is to help heal hearts

Little Smiles is a volunteer driven, non-profit 501(c)3 children’s charity. Our mission is to help heal hearts and create little smiles by providing gifts and fun activities to children impacted by serious illness, homelessness or tragedy. With the guidance of local professionals such as doctors, nurses, child life specialists and social workers, we strive to help kids escape their unfortunate circumstances, even if only for a short period of time.

Here is how we do it:

Nurses and social workers submit requests to Little Smiles on behalf of kids in their care.

Our signature “Junk Food Runs” are designed to deliver snacks and special treats to kids who are spending all of their time in a hospital for pediatrics facility.

We host special events with partners to cultivate a supportive environment for families and healthcare workers.
