Child Life, Education and Creative Arts Therapy

Please note: In the hospital, infections are always a risk. To protect our patients, we are no longer accepting homemade items, stuffed animals or blankets. Also, due to patient confidentiality and infection control, donors are not able to deliver gifts directly to children.

What to donate

The items on our toy donation wish list are most appropriate and entertaining for children while they are hospitalized. Provide comfort to our patients during the holidays and throughout the year by donating new toys, games, gift cards and other supplies. Durable, manageable-sized toys are most helpful.

To donate new or gently used books, please review our guidelines for donating and delivering books.

Holding a toy drive

If you would like to hold a toy drive for patients at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, please download, print and complete a toy donation form, then either fax to the Events and Donations Coordinator at 215-590-2023 or scan and email back to the Child Life Department.

Deliver your donation

To deliver your donation, please come to the front entrance of the Main Hospital at 34th and Civic Center Blvd. Signs will be posted to direct you to the drop off area.

To make a monetary donation, please call The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Foundation at 267-426-6500 or make a donation online.
