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.
