Holiday Helpers & Wish Lists

You can be a blessing to a child with special needs by participating in Holiday Helpers, The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital’s annual gift drive. From Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day, local businesses, schools, churches, civic clubs and families are invited to meet the material needs of patients by purchasing items ranging from diapers to specifically requested toys and therapeutic items.

Participating in Holiday Helpers is easy and highly impactful.  The majority of the most essential items are available at stores such as Walmart, Target, Walgreens and CVS. The items that are of the greatest need are included in the Basic Needs List.  This list includes items that are used in high quantities, such as the 5,200 diapers used throughout the Hospital each week.

Donors can select to support a specific department by purchasing needed items for departments such as Special Education, Speech Therapy, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Family Services. Needed items are included on wish lists at multiple retailers, both online and in-store, including:
