Toy Bank Donations
At BC Children's Hospital, the Child Life Team provides play opportunities, toys and activities to children and youth in various settings. Whether they bring play to the bedside for an inpatient, provide activities in the playroom or help stock the toy needs of outpatient clinics, this team works hard to ensure play is incorporated into all aspects of a child's care.
Due to the overwhelming response from the public during the holiday season, and the lack of storage, the hospital is unable to accept non-monetary donations outside the month of December.
Alternatively, please consider one of the following options for your donation:
- Support the needs of the Child Life Team by making an online donation to help meet the toy and activity needs throughout the year, and fulfill specific needs.
- Donate at one of C&W's Thrift Shops
- Donate to a lower mainland bureau
For information about age appropriate toys and gifts accepted by the hospital each December, please review our Wish List, or contact Patient Experience at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1.844.874.3267.
