Play is an important part of the healing process for children in the hospital, and Wolfson Children’s Hospital is calling on the community for a sixth year to help make sure there are enough toys and activities for all patients, from infants to teenagers. Along with our toy collection event at the end of July, there are now new and convenient ways to participate including online giving and shopping our Amazon baby registry (search Wolfson Children’s Hospital.) For more information, visit ChristmasJuly.com.
For those who prefer to drop off new, unwrapped toys, art supplies and financial donations, Child Life staff and volunteers with Wolfson Children’s Hospital and Baptist Health will be on hand during the main Christmas in July Toy and Donation Drive event on July 25. Other drop-off locations will be open throughout the month.
Wolfson Children’s Hospital treats more than 80,000 children each year in the North Florida and South Georgia region, using toys, electronics and other items to help soothe, distract and ease the anxieties of children of all ages during treatment for illness and injuries. Tax-deductible donations will be used to purchase needed items that will impact these children in a variety of positive ways.
