Wish List


At Niswonger Children’s Hospital we strive to make a child’s hospital experience the best possible. The comforts of home, including toys, games and activities, help a child to relax. We rely on donations to help celebrate important events and holidays.

In order for items to be used in our patient care areas, donated items must meet the following criteria:

  • Items must be new and in original packaging
  • All items must be non-toxic
  • No violent themes (no guns, violent movies or video games)
  • No latex balloons

Please drop your donations off at the Niswonger Children’s Hospital lobby.
