In-Kind Wish List
To ensure safety for our patients who may have compromised immune systems, donated items must be new and cannot be gift wrapped to enable easy distribution to the children. Below are several suggestions of some of our most needed items. These are only suggestions; you can contribute anything you feel is appropriate. Be sure to look for toys and games that many different age groups can use and use in different ways. Art kits and activities make great gifts as they capture children's interest for a long time. Choose non-violent toys that are washable, nontoxic and not easily broken. Mail your donation to Emory Department of Pediatrics, Office of Development, 2015 Uppergate Drive, Atlanta, GA 30322; or drop off between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

|Angel Giving Tree
During the month of December, Emory-Children's Center and the Department of Pediatrics celebrate the spirit of giving with our Angel Giving Tree! Each year, E-CC displays a tree decorated with angels representing the holiday wishes of a patient. Associates, friends and family participate by selecting angels from the tree and donating gifts which fulfill their adopted angels' wishes.
Due to overwhelming generosity, we are able to fulfill the holiday wishes of over 100 patients every year!
Angels will be available in December, but we will are happy to accept gifts all year long for this heartwarming tradition. If you would like your gift to be a part of the Angel Giving Tree, simply indicate this when delivering your item.
