Our HOPE & WISH is to overwhelm the staff at children’s with these donations.  We have volunteered our time there and have seen firsthand how crafts, games and toys make an immediate difference in a child.

The following is the SNOWPILE LIST from children’s.  Toys and games are essential to providing children with opportunities for play in the hospital.  They serve an important therapeutic function by bringing a sense of joy and normalcy into the life of a child in the hospital.

There are a couple age groups which are the toughest to get things for and we have decided to focus on those lists.  All items must be brand new.
