INDIANAPOLIS — The Riley Children’s Foundation is seeking donations toward a new fund that will provide emergency assistance to families of hospitalized children facing additional financial struggles during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Riley Relief Fund will also provide support for the Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis during the ongoing public heath emergency, foundation officials said.
Foundation President Elizabeth Elkas said the virus outbreak is pushing many families further into crisis while they are caring for children with complex medical needs.
The first $100,000 donated are being matched by a donation from car dealership owner Bob Butler and his family, the foundation said. Donations can be made at the foundation’s website: www.RileyKids.org/Relief.
The new relief fund is meant to provide families with emergency assistance for housing, utilities, transportation, medications, food and other necessities.
