Holiday Donations and Parade Volunteers


Holiday parade

The annual Dallas Children’s Health℠ Holiday Parade marches through the streets of downtown Dallas every December to ring in the holiday season. Marching bands, larger-than-life balloons, holiday floats, and more anchor the parade. Please click here for more information about the parade, volunteer opportunities and to purchase tickets.

Deck the hospital halls

The Women’s Auxiliary has an annual tradition of decorating common spaces and halls of the hospital with holiday wreaths and trees to bring holiday cheer to patients and visitors. Auxiliary members, families and community organizations support this meaningful project each year. The Auxiliary provides 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 has a tradition of giving each hospitalized child a gift on Christmas. Gifts come from generous donations from the public and are wrapped by hospital staff. Any gifts that are not distributed on Christmas 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 provides donation and volunteer guidelines and donation wish lists as a way to 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.
