The Mission of the Littlest Angel Guild is to support CHOC Children's hospital to provide high-quality care to children regardless of their families' ability to pay. The Guild's role is to increase the community's awareness of CHOC Children's and is one of 11 Guilds serving the CHOC Foundation.
The Guild is a group of women dedicated to children and service to the community. We join the Guild knowing as a group we are able to accomplish much more than as individuals.
The results of the dedication of past and present members is evident in our receiving recognition as CHOC Miracle Makers and we have contributed $5 million in donations. There are still more children to care for and more families to help.
We volunteer our time and talents to raise money for CHOC Children's. By example we strive to foster an understanding and awareness of the needs of CHOC Children's and the over 230,000 children that are treated annually.
For many, the hospital has touched our lives, caring for our children, our family, neighbors and friends. We invite you to join a very special group of people who have chosen to make a difference in children's lives. In 2009-2011, we successfully completed our pledge for Oncology Rooms.
Our most recent pledge is an Oncology Room in the Bill Holmes Tower opening in 2013.
One of our newest members Stephanie's daughter Angela was cared for in a room similar to the ones we help to fund (see photos in right hand column).
We welcome your interest in joining our Guild. Please print Membership Form and mail to the address provided and we will contact you.
