The 2016 Recipient of the Shirley N. Pettis Award – Farmer Boys

For more than 16 years, Farmer Boys has made a difference in the lives of Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital patients — from the most fragile newborns to children fighting cancer.

Farmer Boys is committed to working tirelessly on the behalf of the more than 175,000 critically ill children who rely on Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital for care each year.

Farmer Boys hosts “Give a Helping Hand,” an annual, in-store fundraiser, in its nearly 90 locations. In 2016, Farmer Boys raised $111,374 with 100 percent of each donation benefiting Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital.

Farmer Boys also sponsors the K-FROG Radiothon, for kids at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital who are fighting cancer. They are also a proud sponsor of Children’s Day an event designed to ease children’s fear of going to the hospital, doctor or dentist.

Over the last two decades, Farmer Boys has donated over $655,000 to Children’s Hospital. From the cardiac intensive care and neonatal intensive care units to the pediatric intensive care unit, the emergency department, hematology and oncology, and acute care, Farmer Boys has made a difference in the lives of our most fragile patients.

Because of their vision, dedication, exemplary engagement with our mission and desire to improve the lives of children, we are honored to recognize Farmer Boys with the 2016 Shirley N. Pettis Award.
