KIDstruction Week

KIDstruction Week raises $62,242

Members of the architectural, engineering and construction industries came together for the third year to contribute to Children’s Health℠ during KIDstruction Week. One hundred percent of funds raised will support the Patient and Family Support Services program.

Fourteen companies participated this year with each asking their employees to donate a portion of their paychecks to Children’s Health during the month of March.

Joe Jouvenal, Sr. Vice President of Operations at McCarthy emphasized, “KIDstruction Week provides a unique opportunity for our employees to positively impact the experience a child has in the hospital. We are proud to have supported the program and look forward to participating in years to come.” 

Thanks to Cornerstone sponsors like McCarthy Building Companies and City Electric Supply, additional sponsors and hundreds of employees, the AEC industry is making an impact one dollar and one hour at a time.

Elias Soto and Family

Hardworking father honored by employer

Elianna had heart defects so severe and so numerous doctors and her family feared for her life. The family, who lives in Lubbock, also feared they would lose their house because they were at the hospital and away from their jobs for months.

Elianna’s father, Elias Soto, got a job in Dallas and worked to save the family home while Children’s Health doctors worked to save his daughter’s life. Take 5 Oil Change, a supporter of Children’s Health and Children’s Miracle Network, honored Elias Soto’s fatherhood with a random act of kindness; they gave him and his wife a cruise in the Caribbean as a much-needed break from the taxing work of taking care of a child with numerous medical needs.
