The Child Life staff is grateful for the many visitors who ask about making donations to support the program. Gifts and toys, craft supplies, videos and video games that are in new or good condition are most welcome. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept donations of used stuffed animals or cloth toys due to the hospital's infection-control policy. If you are interested in receiving a copy of our "wish list" or in making a donation, you may call the Child Life Department at (305) 666-6511, ext. 4875.
