Patient Gift Request (PGR)
The PGR program allows patients to submit their personalized gift requests directly from our website. We encourage patient's, their families, and staff to email all gift requests for expedited review. This program's goal is to give patients hope that something special is waiting just for them at the next milestone in their journey, because hope is a powerful weapon that can be just what someone needs to conquer their next battle. (We recommend sending the website URL in your request to ensure fulfillment accuracy) Click here to submit a gift request.
Companions for Comfort
Each patient can receive a free companion and customize their new friend with an outfit and accessories of their choice. Clothing and accessories can be chosen directly from the Build-A-Bear website. Selections can then be submitted to our website by providing the URL(s) in the request form for purchase. Companions will be delivered during the agreed upon day submitted in the online form.

New Toy and New Gift Donations
This ongoing program collects new toy and new gift donations year-round to keep toy closets filled for children fighting cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Contributions can be made in a variety of ways. Learn how to donate here. All donations must be new and unopened for health and safety reasons (Items must be able to be sterilized and/or washed)
Inpatient Arts & Crafts
We aim to provide a fun distraction for patients and their families while they are undergoing treatment. All necessary tools (paint, canvases, easels, brushes, etc) will be provided so participants can create their own works of art. Artwork can be taken home or donated for later use during fundraising events. All interested patients and eligible family members can receive prepacked craft bags in place of inpatient events due to COVID-19.
This program utilizes various digital payment platforms to continuously collect monetary contributions without time restrictions. Choose your payment platform here. Monetary donations support free craft bag distribution and "Patient Gift Requests"
Community Arts & Crafts
We offer free arts & crafts activities to our local community during various events throughout the year so children and families of all ages can come together to create art, have fun, and make memories.
We encourage our community to continue submitting activity suggestions through our website.
