Pickleberry Pie Hospital Concerts for Kids uses the healing power of music to help kids feel like kids again! We bring professional musicians into hospitals and other institutions to work directly with kids, bringing joy and comfort.
Pickleberry Pie is committed to continuing our mission of bringing music to children in the hospital. Through our partnerships with hospitals around the country we have been able to find new ways to reach out including Zoom visits and pre-recorded concerts. We also have a new page listing all the online performances done by our artists.
This year we kicked off our December month of giving on December 1st and it goes until the end of the year! We are hosting an online benefit concert on Tuesday, December 15th at 7PM ET. We will be live-streaming the concert from our Facebook page. Help us reach our goal of $20,000 – You can donate now – proceeds will go directly to programming for kids.
This concert features incredible musicians from Pickleberry Pie along with Ministry of Folk, another amazing organization we are teaming up with. It will be an exciting evening for all ages.
“While hospitalization is tough for families and patients alike, the opportunity to allow a child to sing, dance, smile, and to enjoy being a normalized child is like no other. We are extremely grateful to have access to Pickleberry Pie and their performers, and hope that we continue with the opportunity to work with such wonderful artists.”

“The hospital can be very stressful. So when there are treats that make things feel less like a hospital, that is a God-send. Thank you for offering comfort, it mattered big time.”
-Jennifer Harvey, Mom of J.R.
“Thank you for caring for kids who need more joy in their lives.”
