Contact Children's Health
When considering your donation of a new gift or toy, please note that our greatest needs are infant/toddler items and teen items. Please note that only new stuffed animals may be accepted as donations due to infection control policies.
Gift cards from Wal-Mart, Target and Toys R Us are also welcome and will be used to purchase supplies and specific requests from patients. Your interest is very much appreciated!
Due to patient confidentiality and infection control, donated items are distributed by Children's Health staff. Unfortunately, individuals and groups are not allowed to distribute donated items to patients. Due to infection control all items must be new and unused in their original packaging. Please do not gift-wrap donated items.

Or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your contact information and the campus you are interested in giving to—Dallas or Plano.
Prior to delivering items, we ask that you complete a donation form and attach it to your donation. Please include an estimate of the number of hours it took for you to complete the project. The time spent on the project is used in our year-end report. An example of how volunteer hours should be calculated is: 4 students spent 1 hour making busy books = 4 volunteer hours.
Children's Health is home to the only academic health care system in North Texas dedicated exclusively to comprehensive care of children ages birth to 18.
