Would you like to make a difference through service to the Children's Hospital? Our volunteers make the hospital a better place for our patients and families through their meaningful service.


When you partner with The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio Foundation, you become a hero to sick and injured children from South Central Texas and beyond. Because of you, they’ll receive compassionate, world-class medical care they need to win the most difficult fight of their young lives.


A hospital stay can be a stressful and difficult time for children and their families. Our Child Life Department works to reduce anxiety and stress for our patients and families. One of the ways we do this is by providing comfort items, toys, and distraction items that are familiar to the child. Play is an essential part of childhood, facilitating healing, coping, creativity, and more. To provide year-round therapeutic play opportunities, our Child Life Department needs the help from our community in the form of donations. Donated toys and gifts are used throughout the hospital for patients varying in age and diagnosis. 

Special Events
