Holiday Toy Drive and Donations

Toy drive

Thanks so much for thinking of CHOC Children’s this holiday season! We are so fortunate to have the wonderful support of the community.

Holiday Toy Drive – Saturday, Dec. 15, 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.
CHOC Associate Parking Structure
557 South Main Street, Orange, CA 92868

In the month of December we ask that ALL donations be dropped off at our annual CHOC Toy Drive on Saturday, Dec. 15 between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Click here for directions.  Although we realize groups may want to collect toys later in the month we appreciate your understanding that receiving donations at our toy drive allows us the time needed to organize and distribute gifts to our patients prior to the holidays.

Toys must be new, unwrapped, no violent or religious themes, and no company logos.  We cannot accept handmade items.  Please see our wish list for toys that we find most popular and appropriate.  We strongly encourage donors to purchase off of our Amazon Wish List so that items can be conveniently sent directly to us.

Although the toy drive is our preferred intake day for donations we can accept limited, smaller donations (no more than 40 toys) Monday thru Friday 10:00am to 6:00pm only, in front of the main hospital at 1201 West La Veta in Orange. Larger donations must be arranged ahead of time or can be delivered directly to our CHOC Clinics listed below.

Please note child life will not distribute toys to patients and families on this date.
