HACKENSACK, N.J. -- The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital at Hackensack University Medical Center recently received an art cart donated by the Gribetz Family of Englewood through ArtWorks: The Naomi Cohain Foundation.

Tali Gribetz raised $5,000 from her Bat Mitzvah and through her friends and family to launch the custom-designed mobile cart filled with art supplies and a special bulletin board to display patients’ drawings and paintings.

The cart, given by Tali and her family in memory of their friend, Evan Levy, will be used specifically in the PICU.

The cart is part of ArtWorks’ Surprise!Supplies program, which provides art supplies for children with chronic or life-limiting illnesses, giving such children, along with their siblings, the opportunity to have a creative outlet while anticipating a long day in treatment, enduring an extended stay in the hospital or accompanying a sibling to a procedure.

The carts are painted by pop artist Ed Heck.
