Johns Hopkins Children’s Center Snowflake Station

Join us in helping the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center with their Snowflake Station toy collection.

Snowflake Station, a free holiday toy shop for our patient families, has become part of the rich fabric of how the Children’s Center helps families find meaning in the holiday season. We recognize that having a sick or injured child gets in the way of preparing for the holidays. The toy shop model allows parents to shop for their child who is hospitalized, or, siblings at home. It is just the kind of experience that these families are missing during this time of year. 

View the Snowflake station  online gift registry for some great ideas – please share with friends and family!

Toys can be droped off at the station until Dec. 10th

Alternatively, donations can be mailed to Johns Hopkins Child Life – Snowflake Station @ 1800 Orleans Street, Suite 7217, Baltimore, MD 21287
