Gifts In Kind

Special toys and activities can go a long way toward making a hospital stay or a procedure a less stressful, more enjoyable experience for a child. We are grateful for our community’s support through donations of new toys, crafts and other items for children of all ages. 

These items are used in various places throughout the hospital, including the child life playrooms, inpatient rooms, family center, outpatient clinics, emergency unit, and radiology clinic. Your donations are welcomed and greatly appreciated!
