Cape Ivy is a nonprofit in VA that provides warm medical ponchos to chronically ill children who have leads and ports. Robes, sweaters and jackets don’t work with the lines.
Ponchos are provided free to Ronald McDonald Houses through the generous support of our donors, sponsors and grants. To provide even more ponchos for your House, please add Cape Ivy to your WISH LIST. A link to the targeted donations page will allow donors to sponsor a shipment at just $10 per poncho. (Gift ship prices start at $32/poncho.) A donation of $150 will allow us to send you a box of ponchos.
Cape Ivy is managed, promoted and sustained by volunteers – no one receives a salary.
The ponchos come in 3 sizes and in a variety of fun prints.

They are best for children with chronic illness who frequent hospitals often or for long stays. The ponchos are most useful for the patients in hematology/oncology units. Parents staying in the House can take a poncho to their child or they can be distributed through a Family Room. The ponchos also work well for your patient residents who are traveling to and from the hospital for outpatient treatment or for those who are in isolation at the House following a transplant.
Children at these Ronald McDonald Houses have received ponchos! We would love to reach more houses. Please share this page with your colleagues in other Houses.
