HOLIDAY: While we are in need of donations throughout the year, we realize that unexpected hospital stays during the holiday season can be especially difficult for families. With the help of your donations, the Child Life Department is better able to help families celebrate the holidays together. Each year the Child Life Department organizes a Holiday Market. Donations are used to set up a “store” and parents/caregivers are provided with tickets to redeem for gifts. The Holiday Market enables parents/caregivers to “shop” for holiday gifts without having to leave the hospital.
All of the above suggestions for donations are needed for the Holiday Market as well as individual patients. Some additional items that can be utilized for this event include:
Holiday theme (Christmas/Hanukkah) wrapping paper / gift bags / tissue paper Gift Cards (exp. Target, Wal-mart, Starbucks, Restaurants)
