Giving Toys and Gifts during COVID-19
In response to the global outbreak of COVID-19, some changes have been made to our donation process. If you are interested in donating toys and activities to children and families at Blank, please check out our Amazon Registry for items that would be most helpful during this time.
In efforts to protect patients, families and staff, we are not currently accepting any face-to-face donations dropped off to the hospital.
If you have questions or need assistance navigating the Amazon registry, please call 515-241-6152 or e-mail DM_childlifewishlist@unitypoint.org.
Our Wish Lists
Thank you for supporting Blank Children's Hospital! It can be difficult for children and families to spend time in the hospital, but special toys and activities can help ease the stress. Your donation of new toys, crafts and other items for children of all ages makes their hospital stay more fun!
Because of concerns about allergies and immunity among patients, we only accept donations of new toys. We also cannot accept any stuffed animals or other plush toys. If you have used toys, we encourage you to donate them to The Not New Shop. Proceeds benefit Iowa Lutheran Hospital.
The Child Life Wish List supports patients in the hospital, our emergency department and our clinics. Due to construction at the hospital, we need to limit traffic. Please call to see about our needs and arrange a time to drop off your donation. Please call 515-241-6152 or email DM_childlifewishlist@unitypoint.org.
