Holiday Donations and Parade Volunteers


Holiday parade

This year, unwrap the magic of the season at the 2016 Children’s Health℠ Holiday Parade, December 3 at 10 a.m. in downtown Dallas. Take in festive floats, marching bands and Santa as we celebrate every memorable moment. Please click here for more information about the parade, volunteer opportunities and to purchase tickets.

Deck the hospital halls

Every year, the Women’s Auxiliary brings holiday cheer to patients and visitors by decorating common spaces and halls of the hospital with holiday wreaths and trees. Auxiliary members, families and community organizations support this meaningful project, providing more than 100 trees and wreaths.

Volunteers can not come on site to decorate the hospital. However, for information about how to help make wreaths through the Women's Auxiliary, click here.

Annual gift drive

Children’s Health has a tradition of giving each hospitalized child a gift on December 25. Gifts come from generous donations from the public and are wrapped by hospital staff. Any gifts that are not distributed are given to children throughout the remainder of the year on birthdays and other milestones. Donations also stock the shelves of playrooms for hospitalized children.

Other ways to get involved

Children’s Health provides donation and volunteer guidelines as well as wish lists to help ensure the needs of the children and their families are met. If you would like to donate something that is not listed, be sure to check with Child Life at 214-456-6280.
