Periwinkle Foundation

Friends of Periwinkle

Friends of Periwinkle is a membership organization of passionate volunteers whose mission is to enrich the lives of children, young adults and families challenged by cancer and other life-threatening illnesses and are cared for at Texas Children’s Hospital. 

Friends Hops 12

The Periwinkle Foundation is fortunate to have a dedicated group of volunteers, doctors, donors and in-kind contributors who understand how important it is to let Texas Children’s Hospital patients and families leave illness behind, if only for a few days.

Producing these unique camping, recreational and arts & creative writing experiences for children who have been through so much takes many resources. The Periwinkle Foundation office has seven paid staff members, otherwise Periwinkle programs are totally volunteer driven with over 300 volunteers giving more than 33,000 hours a year to ensure the Periwinkle programs continue to change lives.

We need passionate volunteers in our Friends of Periwinkle to assist the Foundation with fundraising events and high level volunteer efforts.  If you are interested in becoming a Friend of Periwinkle, please contact Madeline Maestri at 713.807.0191 or mmaestri@periwinklefoundation.org. You can learn more about volunteering and volunteer opportunities on our volunteer page. To view pictures from our friends event, visit our Facebook page.
