A heartfelt thank you to our dedicated hospital auxiliary volunteers, church organizations, team members and community supporters. Because of all of you, we were able to help and brighten the holidays for 60 families this year. Here is what one of the adopted families had to say:

"Seeing my kids' faces light up on Christmas morning really brought tears to my eyes. all of the clothes and shoes fit perfectly! I really love the pots and pans and I finally have proper tupperware. Noah loves all of his puzzles and books and has been reading and playing with them every day. I feel truly blessed. It's been a blessing to have such caring and amazing people come into our lives. Thank you for everything. My heart is with you. Love - Mindy and Family."

Your commitment to helping the St. John's community is unwavering and we look forward to helping more families in 2022! Below are a few photos from Adopt-A-Family.


Thank you to all of our team members, hospital auxiliary, volunteers and supporters who donated toys and holiday cookies to our Children's Holiday Toy "Grab and Go" event on Friday, December 17th! We were able to give toys to over 400 children and a tin of butter cookies for the whole family.


We'd like to acknowledge and sincerely thank Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato for helping to give out toys to the families. It's always a pleasure to have you at our community events! We are also truly grateful for the people at Spin Master who helped us at the event and sent us HUNDREDS of toys prior. The Paw Patrol character, "Chase" even made an appearance at the event and gave out his books and posters. Wow did it light up the children's faces!


Together, we were able to make the Children's Holiday Toy "Grab and Go" event a spectacular one! Below are a few photos from the event.

This year was our 5th annual Community & Back-To-School Wellness Event. We decided to play it safe and held a "Grab and Go" event while also offering pediatric appointments. It was an amazing turnout, distributing 500 pre-assembled backpacks containing school supplies, hand sanitizer and PPE masks for the children in the community.

Thank you to all who supported our "Buy a Backpack" for $15 campaign, we couldn't have done it without you! Below are some photos from the day of the event.
