Pediatric Donations Wishlist

We offer care for children throughout the northwest suburbs in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Pediatric Acute Care Center on the hospital campus.

To help these children feel welcome and comfortable during their visit, we find it’s helpful to provide them with entertainment options. We depend on people just like you to provide this extra touch to make a child’s stay in the hospital a little better.

We accept many donations, but are unable to accept used toys, used stuffed animals, candy or religious items.
