Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
Thank you for thinking of the patients and families at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh — your desire to donate is greatly appreciated. The Child Life Department uses play and expressive arts to help meet the developmental, psychosocial, emotional, and educational needs of our patients. These experiences and opportunities can help children to cope and adjust to illness and hospitalization.
You can help support our patients and families by donating NEW toys, games, and other play, art and diversionary supplies. Donation questions and arrangements can be directed to the Child Life Department by calling Kathi Exler 412-692-9691.
In a hospital setting, safety and infection prevention are of utmost importance. To support the health and well-being of our patients, please keep the following guidelines in mind when donating:
Please contact Kathi Exler at 412-692-9691 ahead of time to set up a delivery date and time. Donations larger than one to two bags need to be scheduled for delivery during weekdays.

The holidays are one of the busiest times in the hospital and also the most popular time for donating. If you wish to make a donation during the holiday season, please contact Kathi Exler, Special Events and Donation Coordinator, as early as possible to make arrangements. It is best to donate early during the holiday season (November - second week of December) so that we can properly accept and process your donation.
