You can brighten the holidays and beyond for kids at Arkansas Children’s
Festival of Stars Toy and Donation Drive is Arkansas Children's (AC) largest statewide event. Volunteers, team members and community organizations come together at Arkansas Children’s Hospital and Arkansas Children’s Northwest to deliver joy to patients during the holidays.
“Santa knew I was in the hospital this year and found me!”

Donations collected at Festival of Stars also support:
- Year-round clinical care for children at AC hospitals and clinics
- Adaptive care plans for children with autism
- Healthy coping led by our Hospital Child Life Specialists
- Infant development for babies served by Arkansas Children's around the state
