A Jared Box is a plastic shoe-sized storage box filled with small gifts, toys, games, crayons, coloring books, and fun activities. Each box contains items selected for a specific age and gender. The boxes are given to children in the hospital to provide a special, fun diversion. Kids and parents alike are so very thankful for these boxes. The boxes symbolize the importance of play and are filled with well wishes, hope and love.
Volunteers such as school children, youth groups, service organizations, sports teams, employees, families, and many more fill and decorate the boxes, then arrange their delivery to local hospitals.
Jared Boxes provide a special diversion for young patients in the Emergency Room, Patient Rooms, Cancer Care Center, Surgical Center, and for children receiving other tests or procedures. The boxes calm nerves, lift spirits, and show them that someone cares! Jared Boxes bring smiles and laughter and lift the spirits of children in the hospital.
