Santa’s Workshop is coming to HSHS St. John’s Children’s Hospital | Main stories

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WAND) — HSHS pediatric patients at St. John’s Hospital will have the opportunity to take a trip to Santa’s workshop this Christmas.

Mike McGraw and the McGraw family donated funds for Santa’s Workshop, a “Christmas gift shop” where parents and guardians of patient children can choose Christmas gifts for free. In addition to free gifts for young patients, Santa’s Workshop will also have a hot cocoa station and volunteers to help wrap gifts for children when they open on Christmas Day.

“HSHS St. John’s Children’s Hospital is a place that is near and dear to my heart,” said Mike McGraw. “My family and I know what an exciting time the festive season is and we want to give back to the children and their families who will be spending Christmas at St John’s. We want them to know that no matter where they are, Santa and the joy of Christmas will find them.”

This can be used by anyone who would like to make a donation to Santa’s Workshop Amazon Wish List for patients’ favorite toys. Donated toys can be sent via Amazon, ATTN: Vicki Bauer, or left unwrapped in the lobby.

“Santa’s Workshop will bring so much happiness and holiday cheer,” said Hannah Hahn, HSHS St. Louis Annual Gift Fund Officer.

We are very grateful to Mike McGraw and the McGraw family, volunteers and colleagues, and everyone who donates toys throughout the year.”
