MHP is totally dependent on donations.  We rely on the generosity of our community’s businesses and individuals to enable us to be able to offer sick children with their very own “happy place”.  We are a 501(c)3 organization, making your donation tax deductible.

This has been an extremely difficult year, especially for children. Beyond getting sick, many young people’s social, emotional and mental well-being has been impacted by the pandemic. In order to do our part to spread JOY, we came up with the idea of The Rainbow Connection.

Periodically, we will select a child outside the scope of medical necessity who needs uplifting for various reasons: financial, emotional, social and mental. Because we believe that every child deserves their very own Happy Place.

We will select one grade school aged child (K-5th) who needs some joy and happiness. The child must live in or within a 35 mile radius of Watertown, SD.

To nominate a child, fill out the application below. Available Rainbow Connection rooms and application deadlines will be posted on our Facebook page.

Thank you to our partners, who are always up for helping out whenever there is a need!
