About the Virtual Toy Drive Program
For families who must spend the holidays at Boston Children’s, the Virtual Toy Drive Program means light, joy and holiday fun during a difficult time. When you host a virtual toy drive, your friends and family can make a monetary donation to your online fundraising page instead of donating a physical toy. You empower us to safely purchase toys and items for patients, based on their age and interests, and create a shopping experience for parents. Your donations will also help fill urgent needs for patient families and the hospital.
How it works:
- Host a virtual toy drive and ask friends and family for a monetary donation instead of a toy donation.
- With your support, child life specialists purchase toys and items tailored to the ages and interests of our patient population, from infants to teenagers.
- Parents and guardians choose from developmentally diverse items and toys and select holiday gifts that best fit their child.
- For families who want to wrap their child’s presents, a wrapping station will be set up with wrapping paper, bows, and tags.
