Browse, Shop and Give to Banner Children's Holiday Toy Drive

The holidays typically bring much-needed toy donations, enough to stock the Toy Closets at all three Banner Children’s medical centers in Mesa, Glendale and Tucson for the full year. After a challenging procedure, treatment, or when achieving a milestone, children get a trip to the Toy Closet to choose their own toy to keep—offering them a bright spot while they’re in the hospital. This year, you have the option to drop off physical toys (new and unwrapped) to a Banner Children's Medical Center in person or you can make a secure, tax-deductible donation online. 100% of donations will purchase toys for kids of all ages—including baby toys, books, games, puzzles, dolls, race cars, and even gift cards for teenage patients.
