Virtual Toy Drive helps stock Banner Children’s toy closets


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.

Due to COVID-19 visitor restrictions and infection prevention protocols in place to keep our patients and hospital workers safe, the Banner Health Foundation is asking the community to donate toys virtually this year rather than in person at Banner Children’s medical centers.

This year, instead of bringing toys to the hospital in person, donors are asked to make a secure, tax-deductible donation to the Virtual Toy Drive 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. To get your friends and family involved in the cause, the Banner Health Foundation also offers free online tools to help you host your own virtual fundraiser online.
