Christmas Wish List

Families at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital rely on the generous donations from donors like you to make their hospital stay at Christmas time a little easier. Your donation of new, unused items will become part of a Christmas experience that gives parents an opportunity to pick out items that will be wrapped and delivered to their loved ones in the hospital on Christmas morning. The Christmas wish list includes popular items among teenagers and young children. Please limit the value of any single item to $150.

For infection control and HIPPA privacy laws we are not able to welcome groups of visitors into the hospital to distribute gifts or donations. We are happy to accept and distribute your donations to patients on your behalf. Please do not gift wrap your donation.

For more information or to make a donation please contact Donor Services at 1-800-822-6344, or ship new, unused items to:
