Covenant Kids Week

For the past ten years, the Covenant Kids Telethon has showcased the extraordinary care Covenant provides for children in our region and across Michigan. In this 11th year, we introduce Covenant Kids Week on WNEM TV5. WNEM TV5 will introduce viewers to past patients and their families, donors, physicians, nurses, sponsors and employees who support pediatric medical care in our community. From 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm Tuesday, April 20 and Thursday, April 22, volunteers will answer phone banks as viewers call in their pledges to support the pediatric efforts at Covenant HealthCare. You can make your pledge during that time by calling 1.855.475.KIDS (5437).  There is also online donation available any time throughout the week at:

Please consider making a donation to support the extraordinary care provided for Covenant Kids in the Great Lakes Bay Region.
