Providing Emergency Care Bags to families of children
who are transported to a hospital away from their hometown.

Shooting Stars is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance awareness of emergency pediatric health care and provide hospitals with emergency-care bags for families of children, newborn to 21-years-old.

Shooting Stars was formed by caring adults who have experienced, or in some way been affected by, pediatric emergencies. Many of us have heard the medical helicopter fly over or the sound of an ambulance rushing by. It is with hope that the emergency-care bags will offer some sense of relief when the family reaches the hospital and realizes they have brought nothing from home.

Emergency Care Bags

In an emergency, people often leave home with nothing. The bags allow families to follow an ambulance or helicopter without having to stop at home first. It is the goal of Shooting Stars to expand this service to every hospital willing to accept our mission. These emergency bags may include:

Calling Cards
Pens and Paper
Comb
Kleenex
Shampoo
Bottled Water
Deodorant
Toothbrushes and Toothpaste

Books Wanted!

We are looking for
new or gently used books
for newborns to 21-year-olds.
Please call for more
information or to arrange
a drop-off.

Grant-A-Wish Program Gives Back CUMBERLAND/BARRON/RICE LAKE, Wisconsin - Each year Cumberland Shooting Stars sends a Grant-A-Wish letter to all hospitals that currently carry the Shooting Stars emergency care bags. The hospitals are asked to present three wishes for pediatric items needed at their location to make a hospital or emergency stay pleasant for children.
   
Examples of the wishes are pediatric pajamas, portable DVD players, cameras, children's play tables, books, movies and games. Equipment wishes have been a pediatric doppler, pediatric scales and a child wheelchair. This year, the Cumberland Shooting Stars granted wishes to all hospitals and facilities who applied for the grant. There were 34 wishes granted within Minnesota and Wisconsin. The Cumberland Memorial Hospital was granted all three of their wishes which included a flat screen TV, a pediatric wheelchair and children's movies. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
