“Snow City” is a magical annual event hosted by Medical City Children's Hospital that provides free toy donations for all patients during the holidays. A room full of free toys is set up each December for parents to holiday “shop” for their hospitalized children and their siblings, some of whom otherwise wouldn’t have a Christmas.

Snow City invitations were hand delivered to approximately 70 families at Medical City Children's Hospital, inviting them to come do some holiday shopping. A variety of gifts were available and ranged in age from infants to teenagers, and each family received one toy per child, a board game and a stocking stuffed with fun goodies and treats. After browsing through a room filled with toys and games, generously donated by various organizations and families of former patients, parents drank cocoa and enjoyed cookies and snacks while volunteers wrap the children’s gifts.
