In 2015, Abbie Nelson and Pia Phillips set out to make a difference. Together with Abbie’s mom Martha, the teens started PAB’S PACKS in order to bring comfort and encouragement to chronically ill teenagers.
Over the last four years, PAB’S PACKS has been honored to fulfill this mission. Through our hard work, generous donors, and corporate partners, PAB’S has brought comfort and encouragement to over 8,000 teenagers and their families nationwide. On a daily basis, we receive notes of thanks from recipients who share about the impact their pack made. More than once, we have heard stories of past recipients who, inspired by our work, decided to start their own projects in their local hospital. We could not be prouder of this legacy. Together, we have witnessed the great impact two teenagers can make when they set out to make a difference.
TEEN ambassador BOARD
In the Summer of 2018, PAB’S PACKS launched its one-of-a-kind teen board program—a unique opportunity for teens to grow their entrepreneurial leadership skills, serve others, and learn how a nonprofit works while making a lasting impact on the communities we serve.
