Name a Red Wagon

The Riley red wagon represents the family-centered care provided at Riley Children’s. With your philanthropic support, you or your group can name a wagon. A license plate acknowledging your contribution will be attached to the back of a wagon and you will receive a duplicate copy of the plate. Wagons are named for the duration of their circulation at the hospital, up to one year. Based on inventory, named wagons may be new or gently used.

Funds from named wagons are used to support Riley’s greatest needs. Upon request, a donor can direct funds to patient care, pediatric research or family support programs such as Child Life. A portion of each donation ($200) provides maintenance for wagons.
