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!
We are currently not accepting any stuffed toys or knit hats and afghans due to the large amounts we currently have on hand.
Items commonly in high demand include Legos, musical toys for toddlers, character toys (superheroes, Paw Patrol, Mickey Mouse, etc), Crayola crayons, markers and colored pencils.
If you are interested in donating toys to patients, we encourage you to use the online gift registries below which are up-to-date with specific items requested by our activity therapists and patients:
*Searchable under First Name: Mott, Last Name: Hospital
If you do not wish to shop at Amazon or Target, our “wish list” contains an extensive selection of donations we recommend to help us meet the needs of our patients in different age groups.
Before purchasing a toy or other gift in-kind, please carefully review our Toy and Gift Safety Guidelines.
Community donors often want to help make the winter holidays special for the patients and families at Mott. Due to the pandemic, this year’s holiday donations will look and feel a little different, but our team and the community are equally committed to making sure patients in the hospital have a holiday to remember. There is a great need for new toys, coloring books and games to give away at this time of year. The easiest and most convenient way to donate is through the Amazon and Target gift registries noted above, which can be shipped directly to the hospital for distribution.
The Giving Library supports Mott patients and their families by providing a diversion from the stresses of hospitalization via the exciting, imaginative and educational world of books. Learn how you can support our Giving Library.
