Christmas in July

We celebrate Christmas In July for the families visiting VCU Children's Hospital for clinic. Erin brings bins full of toys, games, books, activities and so much more. Kids are invited to take what they wanted to fill a Connor's Heroes shopping bag. Everything in the bins came from donations by our generous community. That's not all the fun. Erin sets up a table full of crafts. As the children wait for their appointments, they make an assortment of decorations, toys, and even a crown. Who knew that paper plates and tissue paper could be so many different things? Clinic is also a time for Erin to check in with families. She hands out gift cards and food vouchers. One dad shared how much the gas gift cards help with the weekly drives to/from the hospital.

Our clinic craft days happen throughout the month. If you would like to volunteer in the future, complete the volunteer application found here: If you want to help families with financial support, you can donate gift cards for popular online merchants, restaurants, grocery stores, and gas stations. Mail them to our office at PO Box 2536, Midlothian VA, 23113.
