Angel Pillowcases recently partook in Sean Fredella’s Gold Ribbon Bowl, a flag-football tournament aimed at raising funds for SeanSTRONG and Angel Pillowcases!
During this past holiday season, we donated over 400 pillowcases to Children’s of Alabama for their Halloween Parade and Sugar Plum Shop.
We couldn’t have done it without your support and the tremendous help of Ann Piper, Marianne Griffin, Pat Reynolds, Casey Blighton, Kristin Martin, Carie Gainey and Theona’s Girls!
We are so happy to announce that this holiday season we will be participating in Children’s of Alabama’s Sugar Plum Shop!
The Sugar Plum Shop is a program for patients and families who must spend the holidays at the hospital; here they have the opportunity to pick out presents and celebrate the holidays, free of charge. Our participation with the shop will include having fun, holiday-themed pillowcases available for children of all ages to take.
However, in order to do this, we need your help! In the past, more than 500 children have participated in this program, so we want to have plenty of pillowcases available for them, and raise $14,000 for SEANStrong Fund! Please help us make our goal of 500 pillowcases, and bring much needed cheer to families by clicking the “Donate” tab above.

We are excited to announce that Angel Pillowcases was recently awarded a grant for $3,500 from the YouthServe, Inc. Philanthropy Council! This grant was made possible by the Joseph S. Bruno Charitable Foundation.
Council members, Bela Restrepo, Sarah Holifield, Emma Turner, and Dee McArthur presented a check to Angel Pillowcases, President, Karen Carroll, and Secretary, Nell Fredella, at a Grant Presentation Ceremony.
The grant will be used to make 140 pillowcases for patients at Children’s of Alabama. In addition, the funds will also provide work for women in Haiti, and $1,400 will be directed to the SEANStrong Fund for pediatric cancer research.
This March we were nominated for the community cause of the year by Village Living, Mountain Brook’s community newspaper.
Stay tuned for the results!
Early this December, we dropped off many pillowcases at Children’s of Alabama for the holiday season! Thank you everybody for your support, I know the children staying at the hospital will greatly appreciate the bright and fun pillowcases!
Also thank you Children’s of Alabama for allowing us to come by to drop them off and for the pictures!
We recently decorated our first Christmas Tree in the lobby of the new Children’s of Alabama! Thank you for all of your support. We are excited to have many festive pillowcases to donate for children staying in the hospital this holiday season.
An Angel Pillowcase is also a great gift idea: you can donate a pillowcase in memory or in honor of someone and bring some cheer to a child’s hospital stay!
This Holiday Season you can make the season brighter by helping to support Angel Pillowcases. In December, Angel Pillowcases will deliver 180 pillowcases to Children’s of Alabama for cancer patients and the seriously ill receiving care over the holidays.
Each pillowcase brings cheer and supports local cancer research with $10 of every donation going to the SeanStrong Fund at Children’s of Alabama. The cost per pillowcase is $25 — please make your check payable to Angel Pillowcases and mail it to: Angel Pillowcases c/o Children’s of Alabama – Anna Pennington; 1600 7th Avenue South; Birmingham, AL 35233. Remember your gift is fully tax-deductible. Please go to explore our website for more information or make a donation when you click the “donate” tab.
We still need $2,500 to reach our goal — Thank you for your support! This is a great way to make a gift in someone’s honor or memory this Holiday Season or for that special friend or family member.

This holiday season, Angel Pillowcases is participating in Children’s Hospital’s Illuminations Holiday Tree Display. Our pillowcases will be displayed under our decorated tree in November, but as the holiday season approaches, they will be donated to current patients. We want to have 250 pillowcases to donate, and therefore need to raise $5,000!
