Toys and gifts for children
Programs and services geared toward children can greatly benefit from gifts of clothing, shoes, toiletries, comfort items, toys and games and gift cards.

Help brighten a child's day all year long – at Randall Children’s Hospital
As part of the family-centered care offered at Randall Children's Hospital, we strive to help children feel comfortable and relaxed while they are in the hospital. Every child at Randall Children's Hospital receives a toy, and kids who are hospitalized during the holidays or a birthday get a special toy, book or craft project to lift their spirits. This means we go through a lot of toys and always need help replenishing our stock.
Please see our list of toys, activity supplies and other needs, which also includes instructions for dropping off toys. You can also purchase toys directly from our online wish list. We provide a receipt for tax purposes. You may also make a cash donation to the Child Life Program. To schedule a toy drop-off, or for information about how to organize a toy drive by your school or organization, please contact McKenzie Fletcher at 503-413-1068.
