Annual holiday toy drive for UC Davis pediatric patients starts Dec. 17

Bring cheer to hospitalized children

Holiday gift drop off
UC Davis Medical Center will have two different locations for convenient drive throughs for gift drop offs.

Sacramento area residents will now have two ways to bring holiday cheer to UC Davis pediatric patients and their families during the annual holiday toy drive.

The toy  drive will offer two locations for drop-off donations and two sets of dates:

Thursday, Dec. 17 and Friday, Dec. 18 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center's North Building, 2279 45th Street, Sacramento. Those donating can pull into the driveway and volunteers and staff will be there to accept the donation.

Monday, Dec. 21 through Wednesday, Dec. 23 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the UC Davis MIND Institute, 2825 50th St., Sacramento. Those donating can pull into the circular driveway and volunteers and staff will be there to accept the donation.

The donated gifts will go to pediatric oncology patients and hospitalized children, as well as children in the pediatric emergency department, outpatient clinics and UC Davis MIND Institute. Toys and gifts also will be used in the hospital's playrooms and waiting areas throughout the year.

Due to infection control policies, all items must be brand new and unwrapped.
