Support the Auxiliaries
Whether you’re shopping or attending an event, there are many ways to support our Auxiliaries from San Francisco to San Jose. Proceeds benefit family-centered care programs and services at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford.
Shop for Children's Health
Artisan Shop and Café Wisteria at Allied Arts Guild, Menlo Park
More than three acres of beautiful seasonal gardens and stunning examples of Spanish Colonial architecture await visitors to the Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park. Within this tranquil setting, find one-of-a-kind shopping at studios by working artists; the Artisan Shop, operated by members of the Allied Arts Guild Auxiliary; and the lovely Café Wisteria in a historic building and adjoining garden.
The Gift Shop at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, Palo Alto
The Gift Shop is a bright and cheerful destination for patients, families, visitors, and hospital team members looking for toys, children’s books, hospital-branded clothing, jewelry, snacks, and much more. The Gift Shop is run entirely by volunteers from the Roth Auxiliary with the help of community members.
The Thrift Box, San Jose
The San Jose Auxiliary operates The Thrift Box in beautiful downtown Willow Glen. The Thrift Box is a unique and popular resale shop filled with treasures and bargains including jewelry, women's designer and casual clothing, purses and shoes, collectibles, housewares, decor, children's clothing and toys, and much more! The all-volunteer staff runs the store and accepts donations during business hours. All proceeds from The Thrift Box support care for all at Packard Children’s.
