You made it happen for our patients this past holiday season.

Through the generosity of our communities, we raised more than $44,000 total in the Delaware Valley and Central Florida, and received hundreds of toys from our Amazon Wish Lists.  Each patient received special gifts that helped brighten their holiday season, even if they could not be at home.

For the safety of our patients, associates, volunteers, and our donors, we will not be accepting any donations dropped off at the hospital campus. But there are many ways you can still help our children now and throughout the holiday season.

We invite you to support our Halfway to the Holidays Virtual Toy Drive event which allows donors to help replenish our toy supply and get a head start on the holidays. Your gift helps put a smile on our patients' faces, and allows our Child Life team to cater to individual patient needs, both now and during the holiday season.

There are many ways to help:

  • Make an individual online donation to help support the purchase of toys for our patients
  • Gather your friends, colleagues or family members to form a fundraising team and raise money as a group to help our Child Life Department purchase toys for our patients
  • Purchase items from our Child Life Wish List directly from Amazon.com. 

Thank you again for helping to brighten days of the children and families we serve at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, DE and Nemours Children's Hospital in Orlando, FL.
