Fill the Box?

Since 2017, #fillthebox campaign has become an annual toy and gift card drive. To date, the Mighty Meredith Project has donated nearly $125,000 to date in gifts and gift cards to Hasbro Children's Hospital, Tufts Medical Cetner and Boston Children's Hospital. The annual "Fill the Box" program, the largest philanthropic event of the MMP provides for the following: 

  1. Toys, activities, and/or gift cards that help take the stress out of pediatric hospitalizations and frequent visits.

  2. Gifts for children who are hospitalized on Christmas Day or during the holiday season.

  3. Provides for families in financial need who have to choose between medical care or providing a holiday for their children.

WHY?

As an inpatient and outpatient for many of Meredith's procedures, she has benefited from the kindness of stranger's donations during a difficult visits and hospitalizations.  Aligning with the mission of the MMP of being Mighty Giving, she wanted to help bring joy to those who may be in a similar situation through giving back to hospitals where she has and continues to receive care.
