We’re back again with the Care For Connecticut Toy Drive! We had a tremendous response and experience during our first Holiday Toy Drive and wanted do it again.

During our visit to Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital last December, we found out that the hospital experiences a low volume of gifts during this time of the year because most donations are distributed during the holiday season. We took this into account, marked our calendar, and scheduled another Toy Drive to help this cause. So here we are celebrating Half-Xmas!


What is it? 

A hospital stay can be scary and lonely for a child, so we want to do our very best to change that with your help! The goal of this toy drive is to provide pediatric patients with comfort, enjoyment, and support while they are receiving care at Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital.

Care For Connecticut Toy Drive is our way to deliver a little piece of happiness to local hospitalized children while they receive their treatment. 100% of the proceeds with go to the Toy Closet Program Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital that distributes toys to patients 365 days a year. 


How can I get involved?  

The toys we bring to the hospital are collected through donations! Stop in our office: 31 Business Park Dr, Branford, CT between June 12th to July 7th with your gift and we’ll make sure it gets to the Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital. If you’re far away but would still like to donate, our agency is also collecting PayPal donations. Just send them to John Dendas: johnd@pawson.com. 100% of the proceeds will go to the children at Yale New Haven Hospital. We appreciate your generosity. 


What can I donate?  

All toys must be new and unwrapped. Plush toys are not accepted due to hospital infection control standards. Toy sizes should not exceed 24” in length. For more information on specific gift suggestions and regulations please visitor the Toy Closet Program.
