We need young interior decorators, designers, artists and play enthusiasts to help us refresh the children’s waiting room at St. Luke’s.

Carter’s Corner is a very special waiting area where pediatric patients and young visitors can play and relax in a dedicated space, designed for them. Carter’s Corner has toys, video games, a television and DVD’s for children to enjoy. However, it has been a number of years since Carter’s Corner has been updated and the toys and furniture are outdated and worn.

This special space needs creative minds to think of ways to improve and refresh the space so that more children can enjoy it.

This project has an investment and a service component. We are looking for young investors to contribute ,000 towards the total cost of the remodel. Additionally, we are looking for students who are willing to help us select new decor, toys, furniture, and equipment to refresh Carter’s Corner to appeal to young patients and visitors.

This project is perfect for a group of creative and thoughtful students who are interested in helping to create a space that is welcoming and enjoyable for other young people.
