Donate Books to MultiCare Mary Bridge Children's Foundation

Reading Wagon logo

Are you interested in helping children learn how to read? Donating books to the MultiCare Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation Reading Wagon program is one way you can make life a little better for a sick child who visits our hospitals. Our Reading Wagon program provides books to children of all age groups and helps makes their day a little brighter by receiving a new book that they choose. Help cheer up a child in our hospital and boost children’s learning potential simply by making books an integral part of their lives.

How Does the Reading Wagon Program Work?

Books are donated to MultiCare Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital Foundation. Books are sent to our Emergency Departments, Clinics and inpatient floors and are delivered to each child on a wagon for a child to choose a new book.

How to Donate - It's as easy as 1, 2, 3…

You can mail your book(s) to:

  1. MultiCare Center for Healthy Living & Health Equity
    Attention: Reading Wagon
    409 S J Street
    Tacoma, WA 98415

  2. Donate a new book through Amazon Smile. Ship your book to Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation (address above). You can also add “Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation” to your charity of choice under account select “Change Your Charity,” enter “Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation,” and .05% of your purchase(s) will be donated.

  3. Donate at MultiCare Mary Bridge Children's Foundation.
