“Volunteering at Oklahoma Children’s Hospital has taught me how big of an impact small gestures have. Knowing that handing out activities and hanging out with the kids just for an hour or two can bring them great happiness is so rewarding. The smiles and laughs are absolutely priceless.” – Suniye, Activity Cart
