Many Ways to Serve

Bring A Smile

Loma Linda University Children's Hospital Child Life Toy Donations

Thank you for your interest in donating to Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital. Play experiences can help brighten a child’s hospital stay and we are grateful for your donations of new toys, games and other playtime supplies. We have specifically suggested items for each age group that can be found on the following website:

Donation Guidelines

  • Please direct monetary donations to the Children's Hospital Foundation at 909-558-5370
  • Donations are accepted by appointment only.
  • To schedule your donation appointment, please call 909-558-8141.
  • Donations safety guidelines:
    • Safety is an important consideration when selecting toys.
    • We only accept new toys and games. 
    • Stuffed animals are not accepted.
    • Due to the risk of infection, and for the sake of our patient’s privacy, you are not permitted to personally distribute gifts directly to the patients.
    • Games that are considered violent in nature will not be accepted.
    • Please do not wrap gifts.

Please bring the completed "Bring A Smile" Donation Form at the time of the appointment.

Cards 4 Kidz Guidelines

Cards4Kidz is a great opportunity to volunteer by providing your family, students, or even yourself the gratitude of knowing that you have just cheered a patient. The cards that are donated are taken to Nutritional Services and then distributed to patients with their morning breakfast.

Greetings: Please use a greeting other than “Get Well Soon” or “”Hope you feel better”.  The cards are distributed house-wide to patients with illnesses that vary from mild to terminal.  Such greetings as “Thinking of You”, “Bringing a smile to you”, “Have A Nice Day” etc. are more appropriate.

Size: A total size of 4 ¼” by 5” is the most useful size.  A sheet of 8 ½” by 11” folded 2 ways is perfect!  This allows our volunteers to distribute the cards in person & also on the meal trays.  Envelopes are not necessary.

Materials: Please do not use sparkles, glitter or glued-on items such as buttons/beads or puffy stickers, as they are not safe for our younger patients.

Other Ideas: Cards are needed in foreign languages, for birthdays and holidays.

The patients & families in our hospital are touched by the kindness & caring from our community donors.

Cards may be mailed or delivered with the completed Cards4Kidz Donation Form:
