There are many ways to support the Marshfield Clinic Health System with gifts other than cash.
At MCHS, we try our best to help our patients and families feel as welcome and comfortable as they would at home. Donations of new toys, books, stuffed animals, cozy blankets, backpacks, school supplies, gas gift cards and other items are welcome throughout the year.
Many of these donations are used to assist with the non-medical needs of our patients and their families, and to ease the financial burden of treatments and traveling great distances for treatment. They are also used to comfort and entertain a child during an exam or procedure.
Donations also make it possible for patients to select a gift following the completion of a procedure or to celebrate a significant event such as a birthday, holiday or the end of treatment.
