    Parents who bring their children to St. Jude often leave home in a hurry and forget to pack day-to-day necessities, such as shampoos, razors, deodorant, toothbrushes and lotion. Your gift can help ensure that at Tri-Delta Place, our short-term housing facility, parents can obtain these essentials free of charge.
