I received this note from Evi Feltus, one of our amazing certified child life specialists:
"Swedish Pediatrics is holding a summer toy drive in July and August to replenish our treasure chest. Our amazing December toy drive sustained us for six months. We are looking for small toys valued under $10 to give out to children following difficult procedures.
- My Little Ponies
- Hot Wheels
- Lego sets
We are also seeking interactive light-up toddler toys to distract young patients during their stay.
Donations can be dropped off at 9 East Pediatrics on the First Hill campus any time; please remember to fill out a donation form for tax purposes. You can also mail them to 747 Broadway Seattle, WA 98122. Please include your name, address and phone number for tax purposes.
Also, Swedish Medical Center Pediatrics is registered at Target (new window will open) if you are looking for additional items or suggestions.
Thank you for your continued support in providing a comforting environment for our patients!"
