Toys have an amazing way of making kids smile, distracting them during unpleasant times and helping them look past their pain. That’s why we’ve created toy closets at Banner Health hospitals stocked with new, unused toys for pediatric patients of all ages.
Made possible by monetary and toy donations from individuals, school and youth organizations, businesses and corporations, these toy-filled havens enable our young patients to find fun and joy during their hospital experience. Patients visit the closets following treatments and procedures to choose a toy as a reward for their bravery. From dolls and stuffed animals, to coloring books, video games, craft kits and more, the donated items make a difference for our young patients.
