Children's Mercy is always in need of donations to help us provide the best care for our patients and families. Hosting a donation drive? Please review the fundraiser guidelines and in-kind donation guidelines, and submit an application to tell us a little more about your drive - this information will help us thank and recognize you appropriately!
For the health and safety of our patients, all donation items must be new and in their original packaging.
The Children's Mercy Snowflake Shoppe
This holiday season, the Children’s Mercy Snowflake Shoppe will provide parents and caregivers the opportunity to select presents for the special child in their lives without having to leave the hospital. This experience gives families a small sense of normalcy and a big sense of joy without the financial burden and stress of leaving their patient’s bedside. Children’s Mercy relies on the community to help us “Stock the Shoppe” with donations of brand new toys, items and gift cards. The deadline for donations to be dropped off at Children's Mercy - Adele Hall Campus to be included in the Snowflake Shoppe is Friday, December 18.
