frequently asked questions
How will it work? When donors arrive to the drop off event, they will be able to pull their car up and open their trunk full of gifts. Dayton Children’s volunteer “elves” will do the rest unloading the donations and filling trucks to deliver them to patients at Dayton Children’s during the holidays!
What can be donated? There are three ways you can donate this year:
- Let us do the shopping: Monetary donations are always welcome. These donations allow the Dayton Children’s child life staff to shop for items they know patients really want. Make a donation at support.daytonchildrens.org/givechildlife .
- Shop our Amazon wish list: You can also shop our Amazon wish list and have the items shipped directly to the hospital!
- Do your own shopping and drop the items off at our drop off days! There are so many fun options to donate, the one thing we ask is that all donations must be new. To make it easy for the community we’ve developed a wish list of items! You can view the full wish list at childrensdayton.org/wishlist.
Is there anything that cannot be donated?
Due to infection control and for the safety of our patients, we cannot accept:
- Used stuff animals or toys.
