Donate to the SAGES Toy & Gift Drive for Texas Children’s Hospital!
We will package all gifts during the Spouse’s/Guest breakfast on March 23rd – see below for details.
The SAGES humanitarian program main mission is to employ the resources of SAGES and its members for humanitarian purposes in bettering the health of patients. Each year SAGES’ members participate in a variety of community and medical volunteer work in the U.S. and abroad.
This year we have made it incredibly convenient for you to participate by bringing, shipping or buying onsite donations for the Texas Children’s Hospital. Also, by ordering online through the SAGES Foundation Smile-Amazon Page, a portion of your purchase will also benefit the SAGES Foundation. Please note that you don’t need to attend the 2017 meeting to donate. You can find suggested gifts below (with direct links to purchase) and instructions.
As SAGES members, let us come together and give these children a reason to smile. Imagine the impact a single gift can have!
