Toy and book donations
Gifts to Boston Children's Hospital are deeply appreciated. Please note that we receive many gifts during the holiday season. Your toy donations at other times throughout the year will help brighten children year-round.
Gifts to Children’s are deeply appreciated. However, many gifts are received at the Holiday season. Your gift of toys at other times of the year will help children year-round and not overload them at the holidays! Thank you!
Reach Out and Read (ROR) is a national program designed to promote school readiness and early literacy skills among children who are at increased risk for reading failure. At each check-up between the ages of 6 months to 5 years, children are given their own brand new, developmentally and culturally appropriate book. ROR accepts new and gently used donations of children's books. We are also in need of books written in a variety of languages, especially Spanish.
