The Pensacola Children's Chorus has closely partnered with the Studer Family Children's Hospital at Sacred Heart (SFCH) for many years. Annual collaborations include singing for the treelighting ceremony and caroling through the halls during the holiday season. In 2019, the Ambassador Choir partnered with SFCH and the Sacred Heart Foundation to record two songs throughout which a child's recorded heartbeat can be woven. These songs will serve as keepsakes and memories for parents whose children pass away while in the hospital's care.

PCC's Ambassador partners up with the Arc Gateway choir to perform Christmas carols at Arc Gateway's annual Tree of Lights treelighting ceremony.
