The Sugar Plum Shop is Children’s of Alabama’s program for in-patients and their families who spend the holidays at the hospital.  At Children’s of Alabama, we make sure the magic of the season finds every patient and family who must spend the holidays with us. Parents and caregivers have the opportunity to “shop” (at no cost to them) for their patient and his or her siblings at the Sugar Plum Shop, a toy store we set up right in the hospital. Thanks to the generous support of our donors and community partners, the 2021 Sugar Plum Shop served 729 children – 326 patients and 403 siblings!


Thank you for your interest in bringing the magic of the holidays to Children’s of Alabama.

Monetary donations are helpful to make sure we are able to provide for all demographics during the holidays!
