Help us Celebrate Christmas at Le Bonheur

The month of December is one of the hardest times for a child to be hospitalized. They miss school programs, holiday traditions and spending time with loved ones. We pull out all the stops during the holidays to make sure every child experiences the joy, spirit and magic of the holiday season.

One of the most anticipated moments over the holidays is the special delivery each child receives on Christmas morning. We want to make sure every child receives a special gift this Christmas, but we need your help. This Christmas season we invite you to participate in our holiday toy drive. 

Below is information about the items we are able to accept and delivery instructions. Click here for a flyer to help spread the word to your family and friends. Thank you for helping to make this Christmas season bright at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital. 

To ensure that we will be able to use donated items, please review our requirements:

  • Due to Infection Prevention and allergies, we can only accept new (and unused) items.
  • We are in continual need of items spanning all ages (especially infants, toddlers and adolescents), gender and cultures.
  • Items must also be:
    • Latex free
    • In original packaging
    • Free from themes depicting violence, weaponry or political agenda

Delivering Donations

Items should be delivered to the main entrance of Le Bonheur Children's Hospital at 848 Adams Ave., Memphis, Tenn.

No appointment necessary.

Child Life is available from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
