Toy Drive

Even just one toy can bring a smile and laugh to a sick child. A new game, an action figure, blanket or stuffed animal often means the difference between a good day in the hospital and a bad one, especially during the holidays when children miss so much and many families struggle financially.

Our annual toy drive ensures that each child at Christmas and throughout the year, has a gift to lift their spirits.

Join us Saturday, December 2, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the lobby of OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois to drop off your toys. Enjoy holiday music, hot chocolate and cookies, make a craft and see Santa Claus.
