Pediatric patients at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco likely will feel better about getting better when they receive a special backpack filled with arts, crafts and other supplies to inspire creativity and bring them comfort and smiles while they heal.

Art supply chain Michaels Cos. Inc., in cooperation with the Starlight Children’s Foundation, donated 200 backpacks to the hospital as part of a nationwide donation to hospitals across the U.S. and in Canada. The hospital will distribute the backpacks to children in the emergency department, ambulatory surgery unit, and short stay unit/pediatrics and endoscopy/minor surgery.

Gaby Golod Greenwald, vice president of the hospital’s foundation, noted that Michaels and the Starlight Foundation are already two of the hospital’s community partners and “their generosity will help enhance the experience of our patients.”
