Thank you for your interest in helping the University of Maryland Children's Hospital's children and families. Community organizations make a difference. Our families are touched by your kindness and generosity.

Visits from community groups play an important part in brightening children's hospital stays and provide a link to home. Read our guidelines for community visitors.

In addition to visiting, community service groups can help in many other ways. If you are interested in starting a community service project to benefit UM Children’s Hospital, check out this list of ideas for service projects.

We are always in need toys, dolls, crafts and other supplies to help our child life specialists entertain and comfort the children. Please see our wish lists.
