Throughout the years, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) has relied on families, individuals and groups for a variety of donations for their patients and families. Since volunteers can't visit in person to host activities for the families they are accepting Art Kits that you can create from home. The Art Kits help the patients briefly escape their situation by allowing them to focus on creative and fun activities.
To donate the Art Kits, please email one of the following CHOA team members before you begin your project to verify needs and when you can deliver your items. You can also discuss specific guidelines and quantities regarding donations.
Egleston Hospital: Meryl Franco at firstname.lastname@example.org and Ansley Johnson email@example.com.
Hughes Spalding Hospital: Charice Holt at charice.holt @choa.org For this location volunteers can drop off donations at any time at the security desk and complete the green donation form.
Scottish Rite Hospital: Melanie Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org
Suggested Items to include in the art kits: (make sure all items are brand new to comply with infection control). No glitter items will be accepted.
