How To Donate Toys

Host a virtual toy drive to help raise much-needed funds to allow the Child Life team to purchase appropriate and meaningful toys and items for patients, based on their age and developmental needs. Fundraisers are able to customize their own online fundraising page, review fundraising tips, and more. All funds raised will directly benefit our patients and families during the holiday and all year long! Sign-Up Today.

Alternatively, you can make an online, tax-deductible monetary donation to support Child Life to provide patients with engaging bedside activities, distraction, entertainment and year-round programming. Select “Child and Family Support Services” under the area “What would you like your donation to support?” and write “toy donation” in the comment section. Give Today.

Meet Levi

Levi was born with Pierre Robin syndrome, which gave him a deeply recessed chin and a cleft palate. He had corrective surgery at the pediatric division of an adult hospital, which should have been the end of the story. But when they inserted a breathing tube in his already-tender throat, it severely damaged both his throat and his vocal cords. The resulting scars led doctors to tell his parents he would never speak or make any sound at all. But four years of intensive and innovative treatment at Connecticut Children’s proved them all wrong; today, against all the odds, Levi is speaking and ready to start kindergarten in fall 2021.
