Join us on Saturday, December 3, 2022 for our annual toy drop-off at Nicklaus Children's Hospital! Every year, thousands of community members drop off their unwrapped toys to help bring extra cheer to Nicklaus Children's patients during the holidays. In addition to the toy drop-off, you can also support our patients by making a donation or purchasing an item from our charity/gift card wish lists.

Your generosity goes a long way to brighten a child's day! Toys and gift cards are distributed during the holidays and throughout the year, from birthday presents to end-of-chemo celebrations, prizes and going-home gifts.
