Child Life Wish List
UnityPoint Health's Child Life Program is looking to the kind generosity of our friends in the community to provide monetary donations and gifts of toys and comfort items. Donations to the Child Life program help ensure that every child is provided with comforting and engaging items such as books, toys, stuffed animals, games, and crafts during their hospitalization. Child Life services are available free of charge to all pediatric patients to help support both the patient and family throughout hospitalization. Donations also allow for patients to select a special gift following a difficult procedure or to celebrate a birthday or holiday spent at the hospital.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to infection control policies, we are unable to accept used/display stuffed animals or any kind of used toys.
Donations are received at the valet desk in the main lobby of UnityPoint Health - Methodist, seven days a week from 7:30am to 8pm. Due to patient confidentiality and infection control, donors are unable to deliver items directly to patients.
Please include your name and address with your donation in order to receive a letter of appreciation from the Child Life Specialists.
