Advent Project for Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital

Patients at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital rely on the generosity of a giving community to brighten a  hospital stay. Help make a child’s day, this Christmas Fast by assembling a Joy Kit for patients seen throughout the hospital! All  items must be new and unused. Please place all items in a gallon sized sealable bag and place it in the Joy Kit box under the Christmas Tree at church by Sunday,  December 20. Or you may click the red button below if you would like to send us a donation and we will do the shopping.

Please label  sealable bag with which Kit and for what age  you assembled. Then put it in the box under the tree in church.
