Thank you for thinking of our patients and families.  Donating a toy to Akron Children’s Hospital can help ease a child’s fears of medical procedures, celebrate their birthday or brighten their stay.


Patients at Akron Children’s Hospital are often at high risk of acquiring an infection or illness. For this reason, we can only accept brand new, recently store-bought items with tags or in original packaging.  All handmade items must be washed with fragrance-free detergent and dried prior to donating. 

We need to see all items before they are distributed, so please do not wrap gifts for children.

Items we cannot accept include:

  • Used items including: toys, clothes, electronics, books, etc.
  • Items that have been held in storage/collector's items
  • Beads, magnetic items, pencil sharpeners, or other sharp items
  • Items containing latex, glitter, sand, or feathers
  • Handmade crafts, bracelets, jewelry, etc.
  • Candy or food-related items
  • Items depicting violence, political, or religious messages
  • Fidget spinners, VHS, or cassette tapes
