Donate new toys or gift cards to Joy Toys!
Cancer treatment is difficult for patients of all ages, but for children, daily radiation treatments for six to eight weeks are particularly draining. In an effort to brighten our pediatric patients’ spirits, we offer a special Toy Friday program where children under treatment — and their siblings — have a joyful and much-anticipated opportunity to select a special toy from the toy cabinets to celebrate completing another week of treatment. Below is a wish list of toys commonly coveted by our patients. If you’d like to make a toy donation, please send or drop off toys at the address below. We can only accept new toys with the tags and wrapping still attached.
Please note that we want all children to receive similar value toys. We appreciate you adhering to the dollar ranges provided for each age group and are happy to receive larger value donations in the form of a gift card. A gift card to Toys R Us or another similar retailer will allow us to purchase toys at a pediatric patient’s request to ensure they receive exactly the perfect gift.
