EBBL Cares To Support RWJ Children's Hospital

Children need special care and attention when they are in the hospital.  Friends of the Child Life Program have always been thoughtful and generous in helping to make a child’s hospitalization at The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital as happy and as normal as possible.

We are continuously looking for opportunities to better meet the needs of our patients and families not only during the holiday season, but throughout the entire year.  We are excited to announce a new initiative, our Virtual Toy Drive, which can be found at rwjbh.org/toydrive. The virtual drive allows us to supply our patients with age and developmentally appropriate toys when we need them.  It helps us cater to the individual patient needs and make a lasting impression during the child’s hospital visit.  It also helps us have a strong impact throughout the year, making special events and activities become a reality.

If you would like to purchase specific items, we ask that you visit our Amazon Wish List at https://amzn.com/w/2FHTSA5I133KI, which has those toys, games, and supply needs for our patients and is updated throughout the year based on our ever changing population.

We thank you again for helping to brighten the day for the children, families and staff of The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital at RWJUH.  We hope the following guidelines will be of some assistance to those individuals and organizations that wish to donate.                                                                                          

  • We have a total of 100 patients, ranging in age from days old to 21 years of age.
  • We can only accept new toys.
  • We cannot accept stuffed animals or toys, or latex balloons due to infection control and allergy issues.
  • Humorous medical games can cause fear and misconceptions in hospitalized children and should be avoided.
  • Donations are graciously accepted by the child life staff, since our infection control and security guidelines do not permit donors to give toys and gifts directly to our patients.

  • Infant toys (toys that make noise, light up)
