Service Project at Spring District Meeting

Children's Hospital Toy Drive

For our District's Spring Meeting Service Project we will be collecting toys, art supplies, and comfort items to be distributed to five Children's Hospitals within Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. 

Clubs and individual members are encouraged to participate by donating designated items and/or helping the committee sort the items at the District Meeting on Friday and Saturday, April 5th and 6th.  

Please bring your items with you to the Spring District Meeting. If you and your club members are not attending the Spring Meeting and you need help getting your items delivered to the meeting please contact Governor Crystal to arrange pick-up.  [email protected] 

If you want to designate a specific item(s) for a specific hospital please tag the item with the name of the hospital. Note, this list is a list of items compiled from the 5 wish lists I received from the Child Life Center at each hospital.  Our goal is to make sure each hospital receives equal amounts of the listed items they accept.

Please note also that I have added an Amazon link to some of the items in case you aren't familiar with what the item looks like. I had no idea what chalk combs were. Remember also, when we shop on Amazon to use Amazon Smile to support the F.C.I.D.D. 

 The hospitals are:

  • Penn State Hershey Children's Medical Center; Hershey, Pennsylvania,
  • Fairfax Inova Children's Hospital; Fairfax, Virginia
  • University of Virginia Children's Hospital; Charlottesville, Virginia
  • Children's Hospital; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 
  • A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children; Wilmington, Delaware.

Hospital policies we must adhere to for donations to be accepted:

  1. If a specific brand is listed next to the item, only that brand will be accepted.
  2. Used toys & other items are not permitted due to infection control policies.
  3. All donated items must be made of non-toxic material including paint and glue in plastic toys and arts and crafts materials.
  4. All donated items must be non-breakable (i.e. glass) and must be considered a non-choking hazard.
  5. Toys/items that promote violence cannot be accepted (i.e. toy weapons including plastic guns, and swords).
  6. Items that display inappropriate language, logos, or slogans cannot be accepted.
  7. No items with religious content or affiliation can be donated.
Date: 04/05/2019 (Fri.)

Time: 3:30pm - 5:00pm EDT

Location: Spring District Meeting, Natural Bridge Virginia. *note, items will be assembled both Friday and Saturday afternoon. Refer to meeting agenda for exact details.
