We need your help. Your donations could help brighten a child's stay at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital. 

Below is information about the items we are able to accept and delivery instructions. Thank you for all you do for our Le Bonheur families. 

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

  • Items must also be:
    • Latex free
    • In original packaging
    • Free from themes depicting violence, weaponry or political agenda
