We at Children’s of Mississippi have already begun preparing for the upcoming holiday season.
Should your plans include helping our sweet patients and families again, we have several giving options for showing your support:
We would love for you to consider donating to our Child Life or Children’s of Mississippi Family Assistance Funds. When requested items are not readily available, these funds allow our child life and social work teams to purchase those items our patients and families need immediately. Please visit umc.edu/givenow. Use the “Designation” menu box to choose “Children’s of Mississippi Family Assistance Fund” or “Other” and type in Child Life.
Check out our Walmart List and Amazon Wish List (toys and essentials). These wish lists contain items our patients need frequently.
Holiday Donation Week will be December 12-16. To ensure your items have the chance to be included in our annual Santa Bag delivery, they must be received by 4 p.m. Friday, December 16. Information regarding Holiday Donation Week is listed below.
Important: If you plan to deliver your donations during Holiday Donation Week, please email us at email@example.com or call us at 601-984-1101 so we may send you detailed drop-off information and maps.
