Gabriella's Gifts

Gabriella's Gifts is a part of the Gabriella's Smile Foundation focused on providing children with cancer and their families in San Antonio area hospitals an opportunity to experience joy and smiles in the midst of their difficult journey.

Gabriella received gifts all the time. During radiation, as she struggled to get through the 33 days of her treatment, our friends collected something special for her to open every day. She had enough gifts to open one daily after she came home from her treatment. She also received packages every week with toys and gifts that brought a much needed smile to her face. While in the hospital, she received presents nearly every day. Gabriella would often pick out treats from her big stash and donate them to the prize room in the hospital.

Gift Card Donation: How It Works

Now through December 15, we are asking our supporters to donate gift cards – or make a donation for us to purchase gift cards for families of children fighting cancer spending time in the hospital this holiday. We would like to bless 30 families this Christmas holiday.

Gifts of any amount will help and are deeply appreciated, but we’d like to make sure the average is $25 for restaurant gift cards. Any amount would work for gas, coffee or grocery store cards.

What Gift Cards Should I Get?

Target, Walmart or H-E-B are great choices for families needing everyday items including groceries. Restaurant gift cards come in very handy for families staying in the hospital for extended periods of time. (e.g. Burger King, Chick-Fil-A, Chipotle, Bill Miller, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, McDonald’s not to mention the many different Tex-Mex and Mexican food restaurants here in San Antonio!)

Gas cards are much needed and appreciated as families travel back and forth to the hospital.

How Can I Help?

There are three ways to donate:

  • Mail a check with “Gift Card Drive” written on the memo line to: 10650 Culebra Rd. Ste. 104 PMB 129 San Antonio, Texas 78254
