The mission of Riley Cheer Guild is to enhance the experience of a hospital stay by providing volunteer services and financial assistance, as well as offering gifts and resources needed to aid in minimizing stress for patients and their families within the hospitals we serve. In the past 10 years, Riley Cheer Guild has given the two hospitals nearly $3 million in special requests for funding of departments and on-going projects.
Riley Cheer Guild strives to have its work felt in every area of care within Riley and IU Hospitals. We anticipate great things in the future as we expand our services further to include the new Simon Family Tower at Riley in 2009, where we will have a brand new gift shop!
