Children’s Miracle Network – Meet the Staff: Yolanda Green, Water Safety
It wasn't too long ago that this community lost six kids in the Red River. Yolanda Green is looking to prevent that from happening again.
This program started after a 2010 drowning on the Red River that killed six kids from the Cedar Grove area.
7th grade students participate in a 9-12 week water safety program which introduces them to the pool and teaches them water safety and swimming basics.
The money donated to Chilren's Miracle Network knows no bounds. As a Miracle Maker, your $12 a month will go to programs like the Water Safety courses at the School-Based Health Centers in Shreveport-Bossier.
“Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion—most of it $1 at a time—for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
Our mission: We increase funds and awareness for local children’s hospitals.
Our vision: Together we save kids’ lives.
Right now there’s a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital working to save the lives of kids in your community. In fact, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute — that’s one child every second. Some are battling cancer. Some are suffering from a traumatic injury. Others require constant care because they were born too early, or with a genetic disease. Regardless of why the kids are there, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals always have their doors open.”
