Be Bag Drive
Looking to make a difference? Rally some friends together and host a drive to collect the necessary supplies to create “ Be Bags” for patients and their families to have on-hand during their time in the hospital. These activity bags provide patients and their families a special diversion as they wait to see the medical staff and/or undergo treatment.
The B Fund’s Be Bags have made a tremendous difference since we have received them – creating a positive distraction during a very tough time for a sick child.

Each bag is created with activities geared to a specific age range and contains activities that spark conversation and offer endless hours of fun. Once created, each bag is sealed with a personalized get-well card aimed to brighten the recipient’s day.
Since 2014, 1,134 Be Bags have been distributed to local hospitals where they have been placed on ambulances and on in-patient floors providing children a much-needed distraction during their stay.
