Toy Drive!

Posted 11.23.18 by

Hey Everyone!

We are starting a toy drive for the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center!

Connecticut Children’s Medical Center is the only hospital in Connecticut dedicated exclusively to the care of children. Connecticut Children’s is a nationally recognized not-for-profit with a medical staff of more than 1,000 providing comprehensive, world-class health care in more than 30 pediatric specialties and subspecialties.
We hope that you will all help us in giving donations for these children as it is important to make their time spent their as comforting and enjoyable as possible.

Some basic guidelines on donating toys:
– New and not gift-wrapped, no latex
– Appropriate for hospitalized infants, children, adolescents or teenagers (toy guns and other weapons are not appropriate)
– Do not pose a safety hazard, such as those with sharp edges or small, removable or easily breakable parts

For patients’ safety, they are unable to accept used toys or stuffed animals.

Please see the list of suggested items appropriate for children of all ages.

Here is a link to their website, which lists priority items for each age group and guidelines on accepting toy donations.
