Holiday donation days bring together donors with patients and staff

This holiday season, drop off your donations at one of our designated donation days

This year, Shriners Hospitals for Children — Philadelphia is thrilled to announce our designated holiday donation days. The holidays are one of the busiest times in the hospital and also the most popular time for donating. In order to allow every donor the chance to meet the patients they are so graciously giving to and to show our gratitude at this time of giving, we are hosting three holiday donation drop off days in our lobby.

Thursday, December 7 from 2  - 6 PM
Saturday, December 16 from 9 AM  - 12 PM
Wednesday, December 20 from 4  - 7 PM

If you wish to make a donation during the holiday season, please contact Joy Young at or 215-430-4206, to indicate which drop off date you would like to attend.

If you would prefer to mail your donations, our address is:

Shriners Hospitals for Children — Philadelphia

Please be sure to include your name and contact information with your donation so we know who to thank!

Donation guidelines

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:

  • All items must be NEW, store bought and in their original packaging
  • We cannot accept any used or “previously loved” items
  • We cannot accept items that have been stored for an extended period of time, are no longer clean/fresh, or have a strong odor (perfume, cigarette, etc.)
  • Please do not gift wrap your donations

While you're welcome to donate anything you think our patients would appreciate, we have curated a wish list, as well as some of the most frequently used items.
