THE WOODLANDS, TX – Patients at Texas Children's Hospital spent a lovely afternoon drawing and signing postcards to accompany care packages sent to refugee families fleeing Ukraine. All this week, Texas Children's Hospital has hosted a community donation drive collecting much-needed hygiene items for children and women to deliver overseas to Ukrainian refugees in neighboring Romania.

Local communities are encouraged to visit where they can view a list of high-demand items they can purchase new, in the original packaging and drop off at our drive locations. Area residents who are interested in contributing to Texas Children’s Hospital’s Ukraine Donation Drive can drop off items through the hospital’s convenient drive-thru donation events.

Volunteers and employees will collect donations from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Saturday, April 23 at Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands (private drive between the courtyard and parking garage) at 17600 Interstate 45 South.

From duct tape, ink pens, bar soap, diapers and hand wipes to other essential toiletries, all donated items will be prepared and packaged at Houston-based Medical Bridges, a non-profit that aims to bridge the healthcare gap worldwide by distributing medical equipment and supplies to communities in need across the globe, and shipped directly to Ukrainians in need via Crane Worldwide Logistics. For those who prefer to make a monetary donation to support Ukrainian refugees, Texas Children’s has created a donation site at
