During these uncertain times, how can we help?

The mission of the Roth Auxiliary is to manage and operate the gift shop at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital (LPCH) where patients, families, and employees can enjoy a respite during their time spent in the hospital. In addition, all proceeds from the gift shop are used to contribute to payment for uncompensated care so that every patient at LPCH is served.
The Roth Auxiliary has operated the gift shop at LPCH for over 25 years. Since opening its doors in 1991, this nearly all-volunteer organization has, with great pride, donated over $2 million for hospital services that support children and their families regardless of their ability to pay.
In 2018, LPCH opened a beautiful, new hospital which includes a new and expanded gift shop. In the new shop, the Auxiliary continues its tradition of offering a bright and cheerful space for shoppers to browse through a colorful inventory of toys and books, purchase a needed sundry item, or perhaps select a piece of jewelry or soothing spa lotion for a new mom. Most importantly, the gift shop team prides itself in offering a calm and unintrusive place to take a break from the hospital experience.
