The Container Store

Holiday Hugs

With over 4,200 hugs provide last year to local children’s hospitals, The Container Store is thrilled to kick off our second annual signature Holiday Hugs program.

Drop off new, unwrapped books, small toys and games, toiletries, gift cards and appropriate products from The Container Store at any of our stores now through December 18. We’ll then put them in a Holiday Hug Bag and deliver them to children staying in hospitals throughout the holiday season. These gifts will help brighten the lives of children during the holiday season - children who are struggling with an illness.

All items must be new and small enough to fit in our signature Santa Sack (15.5” x 3.5” x 17”). Any item that is delivered that does not meet these requirements will not be delivered to the hospital.
