Throughout December, we offer families the opportunity to pack a gift bag for their children from our Holiday Room. We place donated gifts into the Holiday Room where parents and caregivers can pick exactly what their child wants this holiday time. We have the Holiday Room open for the entire month of December so that we are capturing every holiday, not just Christmas. In order to sort and distribute the gifts in a timely manner, the deadline for donations is Wednesday December 14, 2016 .
Please note that due to the overwhelming generosity of the community we have reached our maximum capacity for holiday toy donations and we are no longer accepting toys. Toy donations re-open Monday January 9.
If you are looking to purchase something for the holidays, we are still accepting gift cards to toy stores, iTunes, movie passes, etc.
If you would still like to help a family in need, donations of gift cards to grocery stores and/or department stores are a great option, or you can make a financial donation to The Patient Amenities Fund. The Patient Amenities Fund is a source of financial assistance for families who have limited financial resources and whose child is being cared for by SickKids. The fund assists families for expenses that are not covered or only partially covered by public health insurance and/ community resources including incidental expenses such as travel, food, accommodation, drugs, and medical equipment. To donate to the Patient Amenities Fund, please visit www.sickkidsfoundation.com/donate and indicate in the comments/ open text box that the donation should be to Patient Amenities fund.
