Toy and Book Donations

Gifts to Boston Children's Hospital are deeply appreciated. Please note that we receive many gifts during the holiday season. Your toy donations at other times throughout the year will help brighten children year-round.

Book Donations

Reach Out and Read (ROR) is a national program designed to promote school readiness and early literacy skills among children who are at increased risk for reading failure. At each check-up between the ages of 6 months to 5 years, children are given their own brand new, developmentally and culturally appropriate book. ROR accepts new and gently used donations of children's books. We are also in need of books written in a variety of languages, especially Spanish and Arabic.
