Welcome to our site!
Savannah started her St. Jude Project in 2016 as an idea to give back to the children of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for her 16th Birthday instead of a Sweet 16 Party. It quickly grew into a something bigger than any of us ever expected.
In 2016, Savannah collected over 500 coloring books, crayons, toys, etc to send to St Jude Children's Research Hospital. We decided as a family to personally deliver these donations(Cape May, New Jersey to Memphis, Tennessee which is 16 hrs one way) to the hospital and also volunteer there for the day.
So off we went! 3 adults, 3 kids, a dog, and SUVs filled to the top with boxes of donations. Being able to give these donations to the kids and spend some time with them was an amazing experience. It was something that changed our lives forever that we decided to do it again every year. We head there in April 2018 and are so excited!
Our goal for 2018 is to double our donations. These items cannot be passed from patient to patient, so supplies are always low. We would love to be able to deliver just as many items for the kids but also bring a check donation for the hospital to use. When a child is treated at St. Jude, families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all they should worry about is helping their child live. Even if its for one day, we want to bring some joy and excitement to these kids and their parents.
