Donate Toys or Other Items
Spending time in the hospital can be difficult for children
and their families; special toys and activities help to make their hospital
experience less stressful. Gifts to the Child Life Department serve all
pediatric patients of Brenner Children's Hospital and will help make their
hospital visit a more positive memory.
The Child Life Department at Brenner Children’s Hospital
needs NEW toys, crafts, games, electronics, CD/DVDs, computers, blankets,
muslin medical dolls, pillows and other items year-round for children from
infancy through age 18.
You may find distraction toys at www.playworks.net that will
assist a child with coping during a procedure or please review our Child Life
Department Wish List (.pdf).
Please call Cindy Mahan in the Child Life
Department at 336-713-3085 regarding donations and to schedule a time to bring
your donation. Our visitation policy does not allow groups and/or children
under 18 years old to visit the patients.
We cannot accept any
used stuffed animals, food, and recalled toys or games due to safety and
infection control policies. Due to numerous recalls for safety concerns, we do
not accept toys and games from discount stores.
On behalf of the patients, families, and staff of Brenner
Children's Hospital, we thank you for your support.
