Make a difference this holiday season!


Dear Friends,

St. John's Episcopal Hospital Auxiliary invites you to participate in the 2018 Adopt-a-Family Program.
We are inviting you to shop for the families adopted.

Episcopal Health Services is the only hospital providing emergency and ambulatory care to the densely populated, diverse, and medically underserved populations of the Rockaways and Five Towns in southern Queens County and southwestern Nassau County of New York. The patient families referred for adoption are identified by the Health & Wellness Center, Community Mental Health Center, Family and Children’s Services and Social Work staff who work with and care for them. The adoption form you will receive contains a holiday “wish list” to help guide your shopping. The gifts purchased are at the donor's discretion.

Below find the Adopt-a-Family Donor Registration form. Feel free to copy and share the letter and form with individuals and organizations willing to support this ministry. Be sure to mark these dates on your calendar:

  • Thursday, November 15, 2018, deadline for returning the Donor Registration Form
  • Saturday, December 15, from 10am - 3pm, gift delivery to the drop-sites
  • Monday, December 17, deadline gift delivery to the hospital
  • Saturday, January 19, 3-5pm Thank You Party

Please feel free to direct all questions to:
