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.

101.7FM WDEL 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 4th and 5th, 93.7 WSTW will host the ninhth annual "Help our Kids" Radiothon.

Introducing The Clubhouse

Run by the Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy team, the clubhouse is a beautiful, spacious area where kids can play, create, imagine and just be kids. This project was made possible by local donors, who contributed nearly $3 million to make the vision a reality.

How you can help

During the month of August, several local retailers help out by crafting special offers. Visiting these participating businesses benefits both you and duPont Hospital for Children!

Radiothon incentives

The Radiothon itself will be held Wednesday and Thursday, September 4 and 5, 2019. Throughout the Radiothon, we'll invite you to call the Excel Business Systems Phone Bank 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:

Tote Board

The 2018 Radiothon raised over $320,000 for duPont Hospital for Children. We'll work hard to beat that in 2018, tracking our progress on the Wertz & Co. Tote Board. We'll update throughout the day and post pictures of the Tote Board on our Facebook page.

Phone Bank

Throughout the Radiothon, we'll invite you to call the Excel Business Systems Phone Bank and donate what you can to support duPont Hospital for Children.
