Vicki Slater with Shannon Joslin and Kayleigh McQuaid of Child Life. The Slaters make an annual holiday toy donation each winter.

Thank you for your interest in providing something special for the children and families at the University of Maryland Children's Hospital (UMCH). Often the hospital setting is frightening and lonely for children. Sometimes hospitalized children and families feel like the world goes on outside the hospital walls, and that they are forgotten.

It means so much when individuals and community groups think of them, and provide a gift or activity -- reminding them that people care. Whether large or small, all donations make a difference in the lives of the children and families touched by your kindness and generosity.

To donate play items, please see our wish lists:
