Donate to our Toy Program

A great way to show your support for Swedish and the children and adolescents we serve is to help us provide our patients with toys for distraction, play and incentives. We gratefully accept donations of new toys, games and DVDs. Donations can be mailed or delivered to 9 East Pediatrics, the concierge desk in the lobby at Swedish First Hill or the concierge desk in the lobby at Swedish Issaquah. For our tax purposes, please include your name, phone number and address. Thank you for your support!

Or let us do the shopping for you

You can make an online financial donation to our Toy Program, which allows our Child Life department to offer enriching activities for patients and families all year round.

  • Use our secure Online Donation form to make a direct donation to our Toy Program.
  • At the designation box, select “Other” and enter "Child Life Fund" in the box. 

What we can and can't accept

Due to infection control and allergies, we cannot accept used toys of any kind. This includes stuffed animals that have not been played with and have only been on display or on shelves at home.  We can accept newly purchased stuffed animals with tags still attached, and Beanie Babies that have been stored in airtight containers. No weapons, please.
