Toys, Books, and Items

In-Kind Gifts

Thank you for considering Duke Children’s for your in-kind donation of toys, books, or other items. Many of our units have individual wishlists, which you can access below.  

Child Life

The Duke Children’s Child Life pediatric care team would be happy to receive your donation items. 

In a continued effort to protect our patients, families, and staff during COVID, Child Life is restricted to donations that are ordered online and directly shipped from the vendor to Duke Children’s Hospital. They can accept new items from Amazon, Target, Walmart, etc. They are currently unable to accept any handmade items or items from individual homes; in addition, they cannot accept donations in person. Please ship all new donations to the address below: 

Child Life Department
Room 5246 Duke North  
2301 Erwin Rd   
Durham, NC 27710 

You can also purchase items from Child Life's Walmart Registry for Good Wishlist -- an easy way to support the needs of Child Life Specialists who are always looking for new materials for activities and play at the hospital. It couldn't be easier: visit the registry, pick and purchase your items, and have your donation shipped directly to the hospital! 

Please contact Child Life at for additional information and questions.
