The Eight and Forty has been given the task of assisting in the prevention and control of all respiratory diseases in children providing scholarships for nurses continuing their education in this field, supporting National Jewish Health’s pediatric needs and the Morgridge Academy for Chronically Ill Children. Local Salons are encouraged to adopt children with respiratory illnesses, assist with asthma camps and local hospitals and clinics that treat these children.

The organization sponsors volunteer programs on the nationale, departemental, and local levels, focusing on children and the community.
