Inspire Holiday Happiness with a toy or gift donation to patients of Maria Fareri Children's Hospital!

Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital's Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy department bridges the gap between home and the hospital by providing developmental and age-appropriate activities designed to help hospitalized children understand and adapt to the hospital experience.

Your donations allow us to gift the children in our care with age-appropriate presents to brighten their time in the hospital. Any hospitalization can be stressful, but spending a holiday or a birthday in the hospital can be very upsetting for children and families. Normal family holiday traditions and celebrations with family and friends can be overshadowed by a child's illness. Your gifts go a long way toward brightening a child’s stay in the hospital. Your support is greatly appreciated!


  • In support of our Partnership for Safety and to minimize exposure to germs for our vulnerable patients and staff, we can no longer accept physical donations at the hospital.
  • For safety reasons, we are unable to accept toys that represent violence; toys made of glass, wood or brittle plastic, or latex balloons.
  • Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital is non-denominational, so we ask all donors to respect the beliefs of our patients by not including religious gifts.
  • For additional information, please email Foundation@wmchealth.org or call 914.493.2575.
