Softening tough times with little acts of kindness.

LHAS goes beyond medical care by providing personal care to those in need. Toothbrushes, playing cards and tea are simple comforts that let people know others care about them. These small details help make life a little easier for the recipients.


Tea for the Soul

This partnership with Patient and Family Support Services, Nutrition and LHAS supports the hospital staff at UPMC Montefiore and UPMC Presbyterian Hospitals, by serving specialty teas, chocolates and fruit.  It is a show of appreciation and gratitude for the meaningful work done by all our staff members.

Join the LHAS Tea for the Soul cart every Wednesday!



“My family and I wish to thank you for the tote bag filled with snacks, water, cards, etc. You helped make a terrible time a little better. Thank you all.”

“Your care package to me as my mom was dying was such a kind gesture. Please know how much I appreciated your care and concern. I miss my mom of course now that she has died, but she did die peacefully, and for that I am grateful.”

“Thank you so much for the bag of personal items that you provide to the families of the critically ill. How wonderful to have a toothbrush, and toothpaste, tissues, deodorant, gum and the pencil and paper. All items were put to good use during our four days in the hospital while staying with my mother.”
