What is Snowpile?

The Snowpile program at Children’s Hospital of Michigan, sponsored by The Children’s Foundation allows caregivers of patients in the hospital to rest a little easier during the holiday season.

Unlike many holiday donation drives, Snowpile focuses on the entire family, providing gifts for hospitalized children AND their siblings. This amazing event is the highlight of our holiday season and impacts many, many patients and families, helping to create special memories during a special time of year.

How can I help?

Snowpile is made possible by The Children’s Foundation and generous community donors.  As this is a holiday season initiative, please check back in the fall for information about Snowpile 2024!

 If you are interested in donating toys or other items outside of the holiday season, please see options below!
