Donate Toys to Children’s Hospital

Toys and child-appropriate gift items are needed throughout the year. If you are considering a donation of toys to Children’s Hospital, we offer these reminders:

  • Our patients range in age from birth through to their 18th birthday.
  • All toys and gifts must be new due to infection and safety concerns.
  • Look for toys stuffed with fabric or foam; no shredded foam, small pellets or beans.
  • Please do not wrap your gift; the items must be assessed prior to distribution for safety reasons.

On behalf of Children’s Hospital, we thank you in advance for your interest in donating toys to the hospital.
