Michaels Dedicates Fun Center to Memorial Pediatrics

(Gulfport, Miss.)– On Wednesday, April 18th, the Memorial Hospital Foundation hosted representatives from Michaels to dedicate a Starlight Children’s Foundation Fun Center mobile entertainment unit to Memorial Hospital Pediatrics.  The Gulf Coast Michaels stores received the best customer service rating in their district which gave them the opportunity to give back to a local hospital of their choice and chose Memorial Hospital. Representatives also toured the pediatrics and neonatal intensive care units.

According to Starlight Children’s Foundation, for more than 25 years, Starlight Fun Center mobile entertainment units have provided entertainment, distraction and a sense of normalcy for hospitalized kids. Powered by the Nintendo’s Wii U and featuring platforms like Netflix and Hulu, Starlight Fun Centers offer online access to family-friendly video games movies and other programs through mobile entertainment units that can go anywhere in the hospital.
