Program Guidelines

  • Each quarter, social workers and child life specialists have the opportunity to request toys and gifts based on the number of children they are treating.
  • Once the toys are requested, volunteers pack boxes for a variety of ages for both boys and girls.
  • The boxes are then shipped, via UPS, to hospitals and/or oncology centers across the country.
  • When the toys arrive at their destination, the social workers and child life specialists distribute the toys.
