Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Annual Toy Drive

Mark your calendars and join Nicklaus Children’s Hospital on Saturday, December 16, 2023, for their annual toy drop-off!  This heartwarming event brings together countless members of our community who donate unwrapped toys to brighten the lives of our patients year-round during birthdays, end-of-treatment celebrations, going-home gifts and much more. 

But the fun doesn’t stop there! There are many other ways to support young patients: you can donate or create a fundraiser through a virtual toy drive, become a generous sponsor, volunteer your time, or purchase an item from our Amazon Wish Lists. 

Every donation counts. We can make a huge difference in the lives of Nicklaus Children’s patients and families by spreading joy in their hearts and creating a lifetime of positive memories.

It’s Always the Season to Spread Joy!

More Ways You Can Help:

1. Virtual Toy Drive 

Create your very own Virtual Toy Drive Fundraiser to help raise money for toys for Nicklaus Children’s patients. Nicklaus Children’s Staff use the funds to provide personalized items for children visiting all Nicklaus Children’s locations, from birthday celebration boxes to play therapy games, our popular Golden Toy Prize Towers, and bedside buddy games.
