Toy Drive
UNC Children's Hospital Toy Drive
UNC Children’s Hospital delivers world-class, family-centered care to over 120,000 children from all 100 counties throughout North Carolina and beyond each year. However, since the hospital is funded in part by the state of North Carolina, there are many purchasing restrictions, and that leaves them being very dependent on the generosity of others to help provide for patients’ needs. They are always open to receiving items that can provide some comfort and a little normalcy to what may otherwise be a stressful time for patients. Your donations to this year’s collective toy drive would be greatly appreciated! Please click the "read more" button for a list of suggested donations.
