Supporting the families of children with illnesses in memory of Allison Ruth Russcher
The Princess Alli Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity that was founded in April 2015 to support the families of children with illnesses in memory of Allison Ruth Russcher. Our vision is to promote family-centered inpatient care nationwide by providing meal and toiletry support to caregivers while in the hospital setting.
Our work is of the utmost importance.
It is common for parents to not be able to leave their child’s bedside for adequate meals, a shower, or to wash laundry during a hospital stay. Charities that provide services away from the bedside are often not a practical solution for these families who may be cities or states away from the support of families and friends. Providing food and toiletry support not only makes the caregiver’s stay more comfortable, but also allows them to focus their energy on advocating for and comforting their special child.
We have been serving inpatient families of the RNICU, PICU, and Pediatrics departments at Sparrow Health System in Lansing, MI by providing care packages since May 2015! We are excited to have expanded our services to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, MI, Bronson Children’s Hospital in Kalamazoo, MI, and Hurley Medical Center’s Children’s Hospital in Flint, MI in 2016!
It is our dream to expand services of the Princess Alli Foundation to provide daily service at hospitals NATIONWIDE.
It is possible with your help!
We have several opportunities for you to join in our mission. From weekly support of our care package project to sponsorship and vendor opportunities with our Holiday Care Package campaign there is something for everyone!
