Donating Toys & Other Gifts

Not a lot of time to volunteer? No problem! In-kind donations (new toys and gift items) are always welcome. We have wish lists available for suggested donations – toiletry items and pre-packaged snacks for our family waiting rooms are always needed. Please see our donation guidelines. Items must be new and delivered in original packaging - and should not be labeled with identifying donor contact information.

Many of our patients spend time in our Physical and Occupational Therapy department. Being in the hospital and undergoing rehabilitation isn't always fun, so we use toys to make healing fun! Treating about 15,000 patients a year means we go through A LOT of toys.
