Special Events and Organizations

Thank you for your interest in visiting or giving to Children’s Memorial Hermann! We are lucky to have such an amazing level of interest from community partners like you who share our passion for providing a great experience for the patients and families that we serve.

Our priority is to ensure the health and safety of the patients and families in our care.  

As such, we have established the following guidelines for all special event requests:

  • Group size is limited to 5 individuals
  • All members must be over 18 years
  • Group members may be asked to show proof of COVID 19 vaccination
  • All items being distributed must meet our Donation Guidelines listed below
  • Prepare to host event/visit for 30-50 patients

If your group meets these guidelines, please submit a Special Event Request Form. Please allow 3-5 business days after submission for us to review and process your request. Although we would love to, unfortunately we are unable to safely accommodate every request. Please keep in mind that submitting a request does not guarantee approval. We ask that all Special Event Requests must be submitted at least 30 days prior to desired date to allow enough time for us to prepare and plan for the appropriate support.
