About Santa’s Toy Box

When a child is admitted to the hospital, parents and families deal with enormous stress and strain. If an admission happens during the holiday season, the stress can be even greater.  St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital created Santa’s Toy Box to partner with families in an effort to reduce holiday stress and create a wonderful holiday experience.

Santa’s Toy Box relies solely on items donated from the community. Then they arrange the toys and gift items into a shopping area complete with holiday decorations, music, and refreshments. Parents with a child in the hospital are invited to shop free of charge in Santa’s Toy Box for every child in the family.

Donation Guidelines

All donations must be newly purchased and unwrapped. They cannot accept used items or items purchased long ago (even if they have never been used).

Kaleidoscope Pediatric Therapy will be one of the official donation drop off locations for Santa’s Toy Box. We will be accepting donations November 14th to December 14th. We will then transport all the toys to St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital to they can prep them for the families.  For every toy donated to Santa’s Toy Box at KPT, we will donate a dollar directly to the The Jayden DeLuca Foundation up to $250.
