Donate Supplies

From birthdays, to end-of-treatment celebrations, to holidays, we find many reasons to celebrate at Stephen D. Hassenfeld Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone. If you’d like to be a part of making these moments a bit brighter, please consider contributing an item from our wish list.

We appreciate your generosity; however, there are certain items that are not suitable for donation. Because of infection control and allergy issues, we cannot accept used toys or food items of any kind. We also cannot accept toys with religious motifs or violent themes such as guns, knives, swords, or other projectiles. Please do not wrap your gifts.

Our wish list suggestions are listed below. When making your selections, please note that we cannot accept latex or rubber products. 

If you are interested in donating, please call the child life office at 212-263-9919.
