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.

To make a monetary donation, please visit http://www.yourchildrensfoundation.org/.

To make an in kind donation of toys and gifts, please see our Snowpile information for this year. This not only provides a list of the most needed items for Snowpile, but also some guidelines regarding what we can and cannot accept, generally based on safety standards.

Volunteering at Snowpile

For the safety of our patients, staff and community, we will not be incorporating community volunteers into the Snowpile event this year. Please check back with us in 2021!
