Service and Support. Making SickKids Better.
Providing an extra dimension of care to SickKids patients and their families since 1950.
RESPONSE TO COVID-19
The SickKids Women's Auxiliary Volunteers continue to support some volunteer services with a reduced capacity during the pandemic. The 5Fifty5 Shop, our main store in the hospital lobby, is closed. To serve our loyal customers, the WAV organization has opened a full online shop. Please visit us at:
For those physically in the hospital, WAV has also opened The 5fifty5 Annex, a temporary store located just down the hall from our original shop and across from the Specialty Food Shop.
