Children's Hospital depends on donations from the community to help make the hospital a better place for children. Your gifts can help support our playrooms and teen room, as well as allow children to adjust to their time at the hospital through Child Life and Creative Therapies.

Please find the link to our Toy Donation Guidelines and Wishlist below. If you would like to make a donation, this will serve as your guide. Outlined are the items we are able to accept. NO USED TOYS, UNPACKAGED ITEMS OR STUFFED ANIMALS can be accepted due to the hospital's infection control guidelines, as they can be harmful to our patients.

Toy Donation Guidelines

For your convenience, we’ve created an Amazon Wishlist so you can purchase items for our patients online. Items purchased from the Amazon Wish List are delivered directly to the hospital’s Child Life Department and used for our patients.
