Children's Holiday Wish List

Holiday image(November 2015) -- Thank you for your interest in our Holiday Wish List for children treated at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center! Your gift may help brighten a patient’s day, help them through a difficult procedure and even aid in their recovery.

The following list includes some ideas for what to donate based on what has been highly requested or most needed, with the most popular items listed in bold. However all donations are greatly appreciated.

A few considerations:

  • Due to our infection control policies, all items must be new, unused and in the original packaging.

  • Items such as paints and glues must be non-toxic. Latex items cannot be accepted.

  • No toy guns, war toys, scary action figures or other items that could frighten or disturb children should be donated.

  • Please no candy, gum or other food items.

Your donation can be dropped off at 350 W. Thomas Rd, Phoenix, AZ, 85013, in the circular drive at the main entrance to the hospital. The valet staff can assist with your drop off from there or you can walk into the main lobby and drop off the donation with our concierge services staff.  Please fill out this In-Kind Donation form and bring it with you when you make your donation.

You may also make a  monetary donation directly to St. Joseph’s Foundation to support this program through our secure online donation form.
