Great Times For A Great Cause..... Come Join Us
11th Annual Candy & Item Drive (Virtual)
Mattie Miracle is requesting your help! Please donate candy and other snack items, so that we can continue to stock our free Snack and Item Carts at hospitals. These Carts are considered a life saver by families who are caring for a child with cancer or other life threatening illness and are unable to leave the child's bedside to get their own basic needs met. Our Carts service 2, 500 families a year.
After a decade of successful LIVE Candy Drives, we have made the difficult decision to transition to an all virtual event. Hospitals have requested that candy remain in its vacuum sealed bags, with its manufacturer's expiration date. Therefore, the safest way to meet these requirements is to use an Amazon Item Wish List.
Now you can participate in our Candy and Item drive from anywhere in the USA. Please view our Amazon wish list below, We ask that all items be received by November 15, 2021.
NOTE: The Amazon Wish List is a gift registry. Therefore, your items will be sent to the Foundation's registry address. This address is in Oakton, VA and belongs to Mattie Miracle's President, Victoria Sardi-Brown.
Help us collect items for our Carts!
Mattie Miracle is looking for volunteers in the community to host their own item drives to help stock our Carts with snacks and comfort care items. If you are interested in learning more and have a school, business, or community group looking to do something for a good cause, please contact us.
April Item Drive -- We Need Your Help!
In honor of Mattie's 19th birthday, we will be hosting our 10th annual item drive. All donated toiletries stock our Mattie Miracle Free Snack & Item Carts for in-patient pediatric families at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and Children’s Hospital at Sinai in Baltimore. When living in a hospital 24 hours a day, seven days a week and caring for a child who is battling cancer, receiving these items can feel like a gift. Families often rush to the hospital when their children are ill and are unable to pack basic items that are needed for daily care. The carts fulfill these needs.
You can participate in our item drive from anywhere in the USA. Please view our Amazon wish list below, and help us keep our Mattie Miracle Carts stocked to support families caring for children with cancer. Our Carts service around 2, 500 families a year. We ask that all items be received by
April 12, 2021.
NOTE: The Amazon Wish List is a gift registry. Therefore, your items will be sent to the Foundation's registry address. This address is in Washington, DC and belongs to Mattie Miracle's President, Victoria Sardi-Brown.
