Thank you for your interest in supporting the children at The Brooklyn Hospital Center. With thousands of children visiting the hospital each year, we are always in need of toys, crafts and games, items crucial for helping children cope.
We hope the following guidelines help you to prepare for your donation or upcoming toy drive. When choosing items to donate, please remember we care for children of all ages (birth - 21 years). A significant percentage of our patients are infants and adolescents.
If you are interested in making a donation and want to donate something other than toys, here are a few alternative ideas: Child Friendly Sticker or Band-Aids , DVDs (G, PG, PG-13), Xbox 360 games (please no "M" for mature), Arts & Crafts Supplies, Personal Care Items (deodorant, underwear, lotions, hair brushes, etc.), Pajamas.
Please note: Sick children are always at risk for infections. To protect our patients, we are not able to accept homemade items or stuffed animals. Also, due to patient confidentiality and infection control, donors are not able to deliver gifts directly to children. All items must be new and in original packaging. Religious items and items of a violent nature are discouraged.
