Embrace the Spirit of Giving

Embrace the Spirit of Giving

We’re kicking off our second annual Holiday Hugs drive to benefit children staying in hospitals this holiday season. “Every holiday season, The Container Store embraces the spirit of giving by helping those in need in our local communities,” said Chief Executive Officer, Melissa Reiff. “Imagine how difficult it would be if your child, or a child in your life, had to spend the holiday season in the hospital. Our Holiday Hugs program is an easy way to bring joy to these young patients and their families through this gesture of love from everyone associated with The Container Store.” 

You can help by dropping off new and unwrapped books, small toys and games, toiletries, gift cards at any of our stores now through December 18th. Or, come visit us and purchase any of our kid-friendly stocking stuffers to donate. Our employees will put them in our signature Holiday Hug Sacks and deliver them to children staying in a hospital in your local area.
