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 second Every Gift Matters Great Toy Drop-Off on Saturday, December 14 from 9 a.m. to noon in front of the main hospital, located at 630 Children’s Drive.

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. The drop-off will take place in front of the new main hospital along Children’s Drive. Volunteers will be on-hand to collect your donation(s).
