Delivering Christmas Magic All Year Long…

Christmas in July is a month-long community-wide fundraiser to help raise funds for activities, experiences, and toys for St. Joe’s Kids.

When People Like You, Help Kids Like Them 

A cancer diagnosis, catastrophic injury, or other illness can quickly turn a child’s world upside down, replacing their carefree days with chemotherapy treatments, needle pricks, surgeries, and far too much time spent away from home. It’s a lot to deal with. But thanks to people just like you, our Christmas in July donation event helps bring a little Christmas magic to these kids all year long.  Through fun activities and festive celebrations your support helps us provide a much-needed boost to distract them from their pain, discomfort, and feelings of isolation – and gives them hope to help them cope.

Your Support Will Deliver Smiles or How Your Support Will Deliver Smiles

By donating to our Christmas in July event you can make a hospitalized child’s day a little merrier and their smile a little brighter in so many ways.

Let’s Celebrate

As they are getting the expert care they need to get well, it’s critical for our littlest warriors to still experience fun-filled celebrations to mark birthdays, treatment milestones and favorite holidays. From reverse trick-or-treating on Halloween, to Santa visits complete with gifts, to an elegant drive-through Prom celebration and more, these special festivities are always a big hit.

 

Enriching Therapies

Therapies such as art, yoga, music and massage enrich little bodies and souls by providing an important and enjoyable outlet for kids to express their feelings and better manage stress and anxiety.

 

Toys That Bring Joy

From infants to teens, toys always bring a smile to a child’s face – especially for kids who are spending their days and nights in the hospital. Your monetary donation will help us purchase some of Santa’s most requested items and make sure we provide a perfect match based on age, special needs, and abilities.

Engaging Beside Activities

For patients with contagious conditions or weakened immune systems, we bring the fun to them with creative and entertaining bedside activities that offer a much-needed distraction from the monotony of their hospital room.

A Treasure For Our Treasures

We treasure every single one of our pediatric patients and know it’s not easy going through a difficult test or procedure, so we give them something to look forward to when they are done: picking out a special item from one of our treasure chests in recognition of their bravery and strength.
