The Red Wagon Project is a collaborative effort between teens in the community and Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. The project provides support items for Children’s Hospital's patients and their families during their stay. Red Wagon Project Ambassadors are recruited to coordinate donation drives in their schools, churches, community organizations and neighborhoods.
To schedule a Red Wagon to appear at your event for collection or promotion purposes, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Availability is based on the existing schedule.
If you walk through the halls of Children’s Hospital Vanderbilt, you’ll likely see a patient or two being transported in a red wagon. When sisters Sara and Erin Puryear saw the red wagons, they came up with the idea of recruiting friends to help fill wagons with toys, gifts and other necessary supplies that would in turn provide an extra touch for those patients and their families during their hospital stay. The Red Wagon Project was born.
