Give the Gift of Compassion
Two Days of Compassion raises funds for the Variety Compassion Fund. The Variety Compassion Fund benefits critically ill children & their families at Blank Children's Hospital and Mercy Medical Center Des Moines by providing comfort, care and fulfilling immediate needs such as:
  • A gas card for parents to travel back and forth from the hospital
  • Meals for a parent who spends weeks at the hospital
  • Care for siblings when parents need to stay with their ill child
It can be difficult caring for a critically ill child, but together we can help support these local families. Tune into 92.5 NASH ICON TODAY from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and hear from families who have benefited from the fund!
