Gifts of toys and other items

As part of the family-centered care offered at Randall Children's Hospital at Legacy Emanuel, 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.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, access to outdoor space and hospital buildings is strictly limited to patients and families only. Please take any photos of your donation prior to arriving. Groups will not be allowed to gather indoors or outdoors.

Toy Donation DROP OFF

In-person donations will be accepted on a limited, prescheduled basis. For your convenience, we have a large donation bin at the outside entrance of Randall Children’s Hospital. Donation receipts are available on the bin and can be deposited with your new toy/activity donation.

IN-PERSON TOY DONATIONS

If you  would like to donate in person, we encourage you to participate in one of our Saturday Toy Drive-Thru days happening on December 12 and December 19 from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. On these days, donors will drive past the main entrance of Randall Children’s Hospital to a donation tent, where they will be greeted by Randall Children’s Hospital staff accepting new toy/activity donations. Masks will be required, and donors can remain in their vehicles. Donation receipts will be available upon request.

If you anticipate donating more than one car load of toys, please contact us at least one week prior to donation at childlife@lhs.org or 503-413-1370. 

If you are unable to participate in one of our Saturday Toy Drive-Thru dates and cannot use our donation drop off bin, please contact us at childlife@lhs.org or 503-413-1370 at least one week prior to December 22 to discuss alternate options. 

Bring comfort to children in need

Please view our wish list of items for the children’s hospital and instructions for dropping off your donation. You can also purchase toys directly from our online wish list.

Due to infection control requirements, we can only accept brand new, unwrapped items (for ages 0-18). We can provide you with a receipt for tax purposes upon donating. For additional information, please contact the Child Life donations team at 503-413-1370 or childlife@lhs.org
