The most precious gift...

The Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children is Delaware's only hospital dedicated to the care and treatment of children suffering acute illness and traumatic injury. As one of the nation's leading centers for pediatric care, duPont Hospital for Children treats all children, regardless of a family's ability to pay for care. Because of its unique geography, duPont Hospital for Children is not able to participate or receive support from the Children's Miracle Network.

Everyday, the financial commitment that is made to provide care is extraordinary. That is why the hospital is asking the community for help.

La Exitosa is proud to announce that we are once again partnering with Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children to help kids from across the Delaware Valley. On September 9th and 10th, La Exitosa will host the fifth annual “Help our Kids” Radiothon.


How You Can Help...

Sheridan Ford / Sheridan Nissan

During the months of July and August, Sheridan Ford (Kirkwood Highway, Wilmington) and Sheridan Nissan (Route 13, New Castle) will donate $25 for every car sold - new or used - to duPont Hospital for Children.


Radiothon Incentives...

The Radiothon itself will be held Wednesday and Thursday, September 9 and 10, 2015. Throughout the Radiothon, we'll invite you to call and donate what you can to support duPont Hospital for Children. We'll have incentives from local retailers for each hour of the Radiothon to thank you for your pledge, including:


Pleasanton's Seafood

State Farm agent
Jeanine O'Donnell


Tote Board

The 2014 Radiothon raised over $257,000 for duPont Hospital for Children. We'll be working to beat that mark in 2015, and we'll track our progress on the Wertz & Co Tote Board. We'll provide updates throughout the day, and post pictures of the Tote Board on our Facebook page.


Radiothon Phone Bank

The Radiothon itself will be held Wednesday and Thursday, September 9 and 10, 2015. Throughout the Radiothon, we'll invite you to call the That Granite Place Phone Bank and donate what you can to support duPont Hospital for Children.


Hospital Heroes

Looking for a way to give big, over time? Become a Hospital Hero! It's a year-long pledge to give $15 each month, for a grand total of $180. Shooter's Choice in Dover is a proud supporter of the Hospital Heroes program and the Help Our Kids Radiothon.


Giggle Breaks

During the Radiothon we'll just need a break now and then, and what better way to lift the mood than to listen to children laughing? Thanks to Once Upon a Child in Dover for bringing us Giggle Breaks!





Buy a Hang Tag

During August, retailers in our community will be raising funds to "Help Our Kids." Participating retailers listed below will be selling Nemours hang tags for $1 each or hosting a fundraiser to support Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. 100% of your donation will help Nemours provide the very best care for children in our community.
