Contribute Supplies

If you are unable to contribute your time or talents you can contribute supplies needed for individual and group activities, stocking our hospital playrooms, and providing birthday and Christmas gifts to inpatients.

For safety purposes, please avoid the following items: Stuffed animals, food, toy guns, knives, candy, cloth body dolls, balloons, porcelain dolls, VHS movies, soap or bubble mixtures, used items of any kind and ride on toys. 

Per doctor’s orders, to maximize the effectiveness of patient treatment and reduce chances of infection or serious allergic reactions handmade items and items made of fabric should be sealed in a zip bag prior to shipping. This includes do-rags, bandana head coverings, quilts, tote bags, bibs, and burp pads. 

Please ship items to:
