Bryant always looked forward to a new toy every time a nurse would come into his hospital room. Bryant’s mom, with her angel’s help are determined to continue to raise toys to make sure kids continue to receive our love and support during the most scary days of their life.
The nurses use these special gifts to help soothe fear and anxiety. Pediatric patients grapple with sometimes overwhelming fears—of pain and death, the unknown, separation from their parents, unfamiliar staff around them, and the loss of power, control and comfort.
With your toy donations, you truly are making a difference in helping normalize the environment for children admitted for continuous cancer treatments.
Holiday Smiles Toy Drive
Each item, toys and gifts will be wiped down with disinfecting wipes and prepared in a clear see through gift set of 6-7 toys. Remember that these kids are immune compromised and we need to take precautions. So that way each child admitted can safely receive one big gift set this holiday season.
Donate toys directly from our Amazon Wish List link here! Share with all family, friends and social media to donate. Click the Amazon link, purchase the toy or item you wish to donate and we will receive it in the mail. We would like all items to be received no later than December 17th.
