Thank you for your interest in donating or visiting patients at Children’s Hospital. Due to infection control policies and patient confidentiality, we are no longer accepting room to room visits. Please know that these changes are for the safety and security of our patients, which is our primary concern. We do book rooms and allow groups that meet the criteria in the guidelines to hand toys out to patients, but due to limited room availability our December calendar is booked for this year. Although we cannot take you to distribute donated items, your support is still greatly appreciated. The children at the hospital this holiday would be thrilled to receive a toy or item from you! Please find our Toy Donation Guidelines and Wish List below. If you would still like to make a donation, this will serve as a great reference for you. Outlined are the items we can and cannot accept as well as some suggestions. Please refer to this guide before purchasing items to donate. Again, thank you for your interest in donating to Children's Hospital. The new policies put into place are truly to protect and safeguard our patients. We hope you understand that their best interest is our top priority.
Toys and gifts are needed year-round for patients from birth to 21. We receive many gifts during the holiday season, but toy donations throughout the year are needed to bring smiles to our young patients during every season. Children's Hospital greatly appreciates toy donations, but we ask that you please follow the guidelines and suggestions provided below to ensure our patients' safety.
Toy donations will only be accepted Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. (No exceptions.)
An extended stay at the hospital can be very stressful for a young child and their
family. Here at Children's Hospital we try to provide an environment full of hope and healing for our patients during their stay. We created a wish list that includes items that will help us create a positive atmosphere and put smiles on every child's face. Items purchased on the wish list will be delivered directly to the hospital and will be sure to bring much joy to our patients. We ask that you keep in mind that we can only accept new and unwrapped items. Thank you for thinking of Children's Hospital for your generous donation.
