Description

The Little Jim Club is an incorporated non-profit organization whose purpose is to raise funds to support pediatric and neo-natal programs for the California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC) of San Francisco. History: A mother took her child, on crutches, across town to the Children's Hospital of SF (now CPMC), noted for its orthopedic department, only to find that there was no room for her "Little Jim." The plight of this terribly crippled child caught the attention of Annie Lurie of the SF Examiner. The Club was started in 1931 to support pediatric causes, formally established in 1936 and incorporated in 1955. Funds raised by The Little Jim Club have been used for: The Little Jim Orthopedic Wing at the Children's Hospital, play equipment and furniture for the Ronald McDonald House, waiting rooms for families of patients and reference libraries for families and Residents at both the California and Pacific campuses. Additionally, The Little Jim Club supports programs to find cures for pediatric neuromuscular diseases to help children cope with their illnesses through play and puppet therapy and provides summer camp programs for underprivileged patients of CPMC.
