Thank you for your generous support of CHaD!

Thank you for considering a donation to the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, CHaD. In addition to CHaD programs and services funded by philanthropy, the kids at CHaD need toys and books to help normalize their day, encourage development, and as diversions when uncomfortable or sitting for long procedures. Below are ways to help provide toys and books for the children at CHaD.

Monetary Donations toward the Toy Wish List

Cash donations to the CHaD toy wish list allow us the greatest flexibility to purchase toys and books throughout the year. We also use monetary gifts to purchase larger items that children use while at CHaD.

To make a financial contribution:

  • Call (603) 650-3431, or
  • Mail your check — made payable to DHH-CHaD/Toy Wish List — to:
    CHaD Community Relations Office
    One Medical Center Drive
    Lebanon, NH 03756

Toy Drives and Group Donations

It helps to have a theme. Themes will help motivate and organize your drive. They can include anything from choosing an age group to buy for (it helps to pick an age the group can identify with) or choose a type of gift like DVDs, board games, "things that make me laugh," or "things that help me relax." See our Wish List below for suggestions.

CHaD Wish List

This wish list is created to guide donations of single items. If you or your group is interested in donating more than a couple of items, please contact the Child Life Program so that you can receive a more comprehensive list.

We have also created an Amazon Wish list. Please contact the Child Life Program with any questions at (603) 650-8831.
