Donations & Volunteering

Donations

We appreciate your interest in supporting the children at The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital. We are grateful for your donation as it helps us to provide a warm and welcoming environment to our patients and families. Your donation supports our patients and families during the holiday season as well as year round. During December we aim to create a fun and safe holiday experience for our patients and families while they are in the hospital. In addition, we use donations to provide therapeutic activities and programming throughout the year. For infection control reasons the following guidelines for donations apply:

Guidelines

** Due to COVID-19, we are not able to have community members drop off donations at the hospital at this time**

  • Donations must be brand new, in original packaging, and shipped directly from a store or online retailer
  • We are unable to accept any used or handmade items
  • Due to hospital infection control and safety practices, we are not able to accept stuffed animals
  • We are a fragrance free environment and cannot accept items with a fragrance (i.e. lotions or lip balm)
