Donate Items

A deck of cards, a doll, or a stuffed animal can sometimes put a smile on the face of a child who hasn't smiled in a long time. Dr. Bear's Closet is a room filled with donated toys, games, books, and other items that really help to boost the spirits of patients of all ages.

Please make sure your donations:

  • Are NEW (toys, stuffed animals, blankets, or clothes) to meet the hospital’s infection control requirements.
  • Meet consumer product safety codes a toy’s package will say if it meets the codes.
  • Include only non-toxic materials (toys or craft kits with glue or markers) the package will say if it is.

 See our Wish List

For more information, contact our Department of Volunteer Services at 202-476-2062.
