Getting pokes and prods, waiting for surgery, and dealing with the day-to-day at a hospital can be challenging for anyone—but especially a child.
At BC Children’s Hospital, there’s a program that helps provide a bit of normalcy to the hospital experience. The Child and Youth Therapeutic Services team incorporates play and other fun activities into a child’s care to maintain their well-being and promote healing.
To do their best work, the team counts on having the right tools. While they welcome any toys and gifts that are on their wish list, it’s even better if they can do the shopping to ensure their inventory of toys meets the needs of the wide range of ages they care for.
Please note due to infection control guidelines and allergies, we cannot accept used or handmade items, or any stuffed or plush animals.
