Gillette appreciates donations of items to benefit patients and families. Gifts of toys, games, books, crafts and electronics can brighten a child’s hospital stay. We use donated items as birthday gifts, prizes, and to stock hospital playrooms or toy cabinets.
You can make arrangements to drop off donations by calling the Child Life and Therapeutic Recreation staff at 651-229-3936 or simply drop off your donation at the Gillette information desk by the fourth-floor entrance at our main St. Paul campus location. Please attach your name, phone number, and mailing address to the donation.
The items listed below are appropriate items for donation. If you have questions about this list or our most current needs, please contact the Child Life and Therapeutic Recreation staff at 651-229-3936.
