Gifts and toys are used by our Child Life team year round for special holiday and birthday celebrations, end of treatment parties, or to help make a procedure a little less scary.

Effective October 2019, we no longer accept handmade donations. All items must be new and in the original packaging. This helps ensure infection control for our sick children. Please note the following are not accepted:

  • Used or opened toys, books, magazines, stuffed animals, beanie babies, DVD’s and electronics
  • Homemade items (i.e. cards, blankets, quilts, pillowcases, etc.)
  • Latex items, including balloons
  • Food, drinks, and candy
  • Toys and games with violent themes

Drop Off Locations and Hours

The holidays are quickly approaching and we need your help refilling our shelves to provide toys and activities for our pediatric patients at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital. The child life team created an Amazon wish list with some of our biggest needs! Please consider donating to Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital this holiday season!

In response to COVID-19, all toy donation drop offs must be scheduled in advance and will take place curbside at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital (2001 W 86th Street, Entrance 4).

To schedule a drop off time, please call the Child Life team at 317-338-3582 at least 72 hours in advance of your preferred drop off time. Donation drop offs not scheduled in advance cannot be accepted.

Please note our updated donation guidelines and FAQs here.
