Holiday Cheer at CCMC

The UCSB Women's Basketball Team payed a special holiday visit to the young patients at Cottage Children's Medical Center.

Share the Holiday Cheer

When you visit one of our corporate partners in the community and make a donation during their CMN Miracle Balloon icon campaign, round up at the register, or drop change into a collection canister, know that you are helping to save kids’ lives at Cottage. Every gift helps, no matter what size the amount. Collectively, you make difference. Together we can do it, one dollar at a time!

Donations are tax deductible and 100% of funds raised through CMN Hospitals in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties stay local to support Cottage Children’s Medical Center in areas where it's needed most, including research and training, purchasing equipment and paying for uncompensated care—all to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.

As a not-for-profit hospital, CCMC relies on community support to provide leading-edge care for infants, children and adolescents, close to home.

Funds raised by CMN Hospitals partners helped Cottage establish the region’s first Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), as well as our Level II Pediatric Trauma Center.
