Thank you for your interest in donating toys, products and other needed items to the Child Life and Healing Arts Department and Davis Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Baystate Children's Hospital. In light of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, Baystate Health cannot accept toy, clothing, or other product donations from the public for the foreseeable future.
When it comes to a healthcare setting, toys aren't just for play. Toys provide children with a distraction from painful procedures, incentives to cooperate with therapies, and comfort when visitation is limited. During these challenging times, toys are more important tools than ever for clinicians and our Child Life Specialists who work as a team to care for our youngest patients.
Baystate Health Foundation is asking our generous donors, anyone who traditionally holds a toy drive at their business or new friends to support our kids with a monetary drive and donations. Infectious disease protocols require that we obtain toys directly from the manufacturer or distributor to reduce handling and risk. With your financial help, our providers will be able to directly and safely purchase exactly what they need to fulfill our children's needs.
