As a non-profit hospital, we rely generously on the support of caring community members to help us provide the highest level of care to all kids who come through our doors. New toys, books, and craft items deliver compassion and joy to children in the hospital. We are always in need of these items. We have needs lists available for our most needed items. Please see our donation guidelines. Items must be new and delivered in original packaging - and should not be labeled with identifying donor contact information.
Donations are still being accepted at the Volunteer Engagement office at Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock and at the front desk at Arkansas Children's Northwest in Springdale.Schedule a Donation
Our downloadable wish lists contain a list of items for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged children, teens and even adults at the Little Rock and Springdale campuses. Please review our donation guidelines and remember, for the safety of our patients, we can only accept NEW items.
Craft Kits Help make a child or parent’s day by assembling a Craft Kit! Kits are used in a variety of areas throughout the hospital and clinics to make our patients and families feel welcome during their visit with us. Download more information about our Craft Kits. Craft Kits can be assembled off-site and mailed or delivered to Volunteer Engagement on your campus. Once you are ready to deliver your Craft Kits, please schedule a time to deliver your donation.
We are always in need of donations for the comfort and convenience of our families. Many of the families here have unexpected stays so we have a need for "family packs".
A family pack is a Ziploc bag (7-8 inches or 1 quart) full of small toiletries and personal hygiene items. Individual toiletry items can also be used (not packaged together). Travel size items are desired for convenience. Items include:

Help make a difference in the lives of patients and families at Arkansas Children's! Knit or crochet hats for children of all ages through our Knitting for Noggins program. Knitting for Noggins is one of the many ways you can help make the lives of our patients and families brighter. Each year our talented circle of volunteer knitters and crocheters create amazing hats for the kids at Arkansas Children's. Since the beginning of our program, we have collected over 343,000 hats to keep our kids' heads warm.
