Vecta Machine Hurley Children’s Hospital
Contributions from DQ® fans and franchisees provided a generous gift that allowed Hurley Children’s Hospital in Flint, Michigan, to purchase DVD players and movies for children's rooms. This funding also helped buy a Vecta® multi-sensory machine that lets kids calm and comfort themselves. The Vecta provides music, a bubble tower, lights and many other features that sick or injured kids can use during stressful moments. This specialized tool is especially valuable when administering care to children with special needs.
Technology Upgrades: Teen Cancer Center Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin
Contributions from DQ® fans and franchisees helped fund more than $150,000 in upgrades to the technology services in the MACC Fund Cancer Center within Children’s Hospital of WI. These technology upgrades allow families to watch videos or play games together as they take a break from medical treatments or stay connected with friends and family during their hospital stay.
Pet Therapy Program Doernbecher Children’s Hospital
Contributions from DQ® fans and franchisees helped Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, OR expand their pet therapy program in 2018. Davis, the golden retriever, joined Hope, another golden retriever, to double the hospital’s ability to make a hospital stay a little less scary and a little more comfortable for kids.
Therapy Pool Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare
St. Paul, MN
Contributions from DQ® fans and franchisees purchased a state of the art therapy pool for kids at Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul, MN.
