Donate Toys, Games and Supplies to Child Life

Thank you for your interest in supporting our patients at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). This year, the COVID-19 pandemic is changing the way we are accepting toy donations. Because the health and safety of our patients, families and staff is our utmost priority, we are unable to accept in-kind donations, such as toys, books or craft supplies. There are still many families that will spend the holidays in the hospital, and we still need your support!

Every year, our Child Life, Education and Creative Arts Therapy team distributes toys and activities to each child in the hospital. In the absence of in-kind giving, the Child Life team depends on monetary donations to provide holiday gifts to the many children spending the season in the hospital.

Host a Virtual Toy Drive

In lieu of in-kind donations, you can help raise much-needed funds for our Child Life team by creating a virtual toy drive. Virtual toy drive fundraising pages are a fun and easy way to raise money for the purchase of toys for children at CHOP.

Create a virtual toy drive

When you create a virtual toy drive fundraising page, your friends and family can donate to this important cause and help make the holidays brighter for children in the hospital. All funds raised will directly benefit our patients, families and the Child Life Department.

Monetary Donations

You can also make a monetary donation that will be used to purchase toys, gifts and other needed items for patients and families. Make an online donation today.


If you have any questions about the process or need assistance setting up a page, please contact Matt Piontkowski or Dee Rodriguez.
