Every Gift Matters Great Toy Drop-Off
Each year around the holidays, Nationwide Children’s Hospital receives countless phone calls and emails from the community asking about donating toys to our patients. Nationwide Children’s will host its third Every Gift Matters Great Toy Drop-Off on Saturday, December 6, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Follow the signage to the Outpatient Care loop located at 555 South 18th Street, where staff will accept toy donations for patients while donors remain in their cars.
The community is encouraged to drop off new toys and/or children’s books that will be distributed to the patients at Nationwide Children’s this holiday season. Please see the map below for the exact location of the Outpatient Care loop.
We ask that you please do not wrap these gifts. Also, due to concerns regarding infection control and allergies, we cannot accept used toys or stuffed animals. This includes toys or stuffed animals that have never been played with but have been in a home as part of a collection. For a list of our most-needed items or to bring a donation at another time, please visit our Wish List for donations.
