How to Donate Items to Child Life's Wish List

Our Child Life Program provides patients with special care for their emotional and developmental needs. At Golisano Children’s Hospital, we consider play to be a very important part of a child’s path to recovery. Play provides our patients with opportunities to communicate and cope with their feelings in a constructive way. Through play, they can also express themselves creatively and socialize with others. Many of the materials and toys that our Child Life staff use for these activities have been donated by the community.

  • View our wish list.
  • Please check our safety guidelines.
  • Because our patients are acutely ill, it is not possible to deliver gifts/directly to the children. You're welcome to drop off or ship donations.
    • To drop off a donation: Make the words “Child Life” plainly visible on your donation, along with your name, address and a list of what you're donating. Please drop off your donation at the Friends of Strong office or pull your car to the Patient Discharge Area, which now is located off East Drive between the Parking Garage and Wilmot Cancer Center. (Please note that Patient Discharge is no longer on Crittenden Boulevard.) Drop off your donations at the desk inside, which is open 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Please call the Child Life office at (585) 275-9878 to arrange for large donation drop offs.
