Imagine being a kid in the hospital for the holidays…
Now imagine the joy YOU can create when you give a toy or donation to Festival of Stars!
This Arkansas Children’s event helps families create a holiday experience they may not otherwise be able to provide for their hospitalized children. Thanks to your support, the Snowflake Shoppe—a special “store” held during the holidays at Arkansas Children’s Hospital and Arkansas Children’s Northwest—will be stocked so parents and caregivers can choose several gifts for their hospitalized child and his or her sibling(s) at no cost. In addition to the Snowflake Shoppe, toy donations are distributed year-round to patients at all Arkansas Children’s hospitals and clinics. You make this possible!
