Help us bring the joy of the holiday season to our hospitalized children!
The Virtual Holiday Toy Drive gives friends and family, both near and far, the opportunity to join together in support UC Davis Children's Hospital. This is a great way for family, workplace, school, or community organization to organize a fundraiser for our patients without the hassle of delivering packages!

ABOUT THE FUND
Your gifts will support the Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy Fund. Our team uses the fund to purchase gifts for children spending the holiday season in the hospital, for children treated at our cancer clinic, and for children treated at our MIND Institute. In essence, your support helps bring a smile to a child's face across the medical campus. The best part is, any funds, or purchased toys, crafts, books and electronics not used during the holiday season are saved and used throughout the year for all of our festivities (including Easter and other holidays), and are also used to stock our playrooms, play opportunities to engage patients at the bedside, and will be used to help celebrate developmental milestones for our patients.
ABOUT YOUR DONATION
Our non-profit hospital relies on community support to provide toys and games for patients and families during their stay or clinical visit at our pediatric infusion room and/or MIND Institute. Your gift will ensure we have fun to last us all year round! We ask for your support in giving generously what you can. All donations are 100% tax-deductible as allowable by law.
