Donating Toys and Gifts
to Patients at All Children's Hospital

All Children's Hospital Wonderland

2013 Holidays: Visit the All Children's Wonderland page

Toys and child-appropriate gift items are needed throughout the year. If you are considering a donation of toys for All Children's Hospital, we offer these reminders:

Donated items may be used as gifts to individual patients, utilized in playrooms, support groups, as in-room activities for patients and in conjunction with therapies. While a variety of toys and games are appreciated, see the list below of "high-need" items that are currently in demand.

All Children's Hospital Wish List

Visit our Wish List to donate toys for the holiday season.
Purchases are secure and are delivered directly to the hospital!

Please contact us using our online Toy and Gift Donation form if you are interested in donating toys and other gifts to All Children's Hospital. If you are interested in making a cash donation to All Children's Hospital, there are a variety of giving opportunities available, including the ability to make a donation online.

The holidays are also a time when many groups and families wish to provide food or treats as gifts for hospitalized children. Because of the many varied dietary restrictions our patients face, we are unable to accept gifts of food. Donated food items will be given to the Ronald McDonald House for families of patients treated at All Children's Hospital.  

Please drop off toys at the following location:

Our hospital located at:
501 6th Avenue South, St. Petersburg, FL 33701

Donation Guidelines:

Hospitalized children have special health needs, so we must be extra careful with the types of gifts we can accept. For example, dust, smells (such as cigarette smoke and perfume) and animal hair can be harmful to kids who are already sick.
