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! 

Before purchasing a toy or other gift in-kind, please carefully review our Toy and Gift Safety Guidelines.

You can bring your donation into the hospital anytime 24/7 and leave it in the blue cart next to our welcome desk. When you enter our building, you will need to wear a mask.  If you do bring in your donation, please make sure to leave your information so that we can send a thank you.

If your donation is large, we can work together to schedule a curbside drop-off where one of our staff can meet you curbside to accept your donation Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. To schedule, please email mottcommunityrelations@med.umich.edu.
