JHU Snowflake Station 2022!

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. The benefit of Snowflake Station is the personalization of items-finding those special gifts that only a parent would know. It is just the kind of experience that these families are missing during this time of year.

 It is through your amazing generosity that we can host Snowflake Station each year, we can't do it without you!


We will be delivering to JHU Dec.12, please have your donations to the station a few days before this so we can arange delivery.
