Child Life Program

Each year, contributions of toys and other gifts help put smiles on the faces of our youngest patients, easing the emotional burden of hospitalization. Your generous support also helps sustain the Child Life Program beyond the holiday season and throughout the year.

Now, more than ever, infection control is our top priority at Children’s Hospital of New Jersey at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center. To minimize exposure to germs for our vulnerable patients and staff, we are no longer able to accept physical donations at the hospital. Instead, we ask you to please consider contributing through Amazon.

Your gifts will enable our Child Life staff to order developmentally appropriate toys that can be delivered directly to the hospital so that each child’s special wishes during the holiday season and throughout the year can be fulfilled!

If you and your group would like to provide physical toys, we do have a regularly updated Amazon Wish List. Please note that if you purchase from this wish list, the items should be shipped directly to:
Child Life Department
Children’s Hospital of New Jersey at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center
201 Lyons Ave
Newark, NJ 07112

The work of the Child Life Department depends on you. Your past generosity has made an incredible difference in the lives of countless children, and we hope that we can count on your continued kindness.

Thank you for all you do to support the children who are in our care!
