Five Ways to Give to Oklahoma Children’s Hospital OU Health

Five Ways to Give to Oklahoma Children’s Hospital OU Health

Each year, our generous donors help us build and enhance our incredible programs and restock toys and supplies so our volunteers can make every day feel like Christmas. We’ve gathered 5 different ways that you can help us to bring bright, joyful moments to patients and families all year long.

1. Give Money

When you donate money directly to Oklahoma Children’s Hospital OU Health, it allows our teams to enhance our programs with the latest technology and create normal family experiences for our patients. It helps us prepare to buy what’s needed to create thoughtful, high-touch events and memories throughout the year — not to mention, it will save you time this busy holiday season!

2. Purchase Items from Our Amazon Wish List

donations​Oklahoma Children's Hospital and our volunteers make sure each child that visits our hospital can play, create and stay engaged during their stay. On average, our toy and activity carts gift more than 1,800 toys and activities each month! Knowing what is requested and most utilized by the kids, our volunteers built an Amazon wish list for our biggest needs, like baby-safe toys and items for our teens to enjoy.

3. Participate in our Holiday Toy Drive

Our patients are always in for wonderful surprises when they receive donated gifts throughout the year. To best protect our patients, all gifts should be brand new and unwrapped.

On-site holiday drop-off runs December 9 - 20: Weekdays 4 to 7 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sundays 1 to 4 p.m. Volunteers, carts and smiles will be ready for you along our East drive by the Presti Lobby (1200 Mark Everett Dr. between NE 13th & SL Young Blvd.) Drop-off is unavailable after Wednesday, December 20th.

Top Wish List Needs:

  • Baby dolls (all ethnicities)
  • Infant/toddler toys and games
  • Small Lego sets, Uno and playing cards
  • Art sets (all ages), teen gifts and activities
  • Joggers, hoodies and packaged undies (all sizes)

All items must be new and unwrapped. Gifts are distributed by hospital staff

4. Corporate Giving

​Partnerships that match the mission of Oklahoma Children's Hospital with the generosity of the private sector can transform our community. Our philanthropy team creates unique opportunities for a company's financial sponsorship of a program to make a lasting impact on more than 100,000 children and families served each year. With your help, we can make a better tomorrow for kids in Oklahoma and beyond.

Since 2010, Spirit Halloween has donated more than 1 million dollars to Oklahoma Children’s Hospital OU Health through its Spirit of Children program. These donations have helped to create a new activity area for children in The Zone — making their experience a little less scary and a little more fun.

5. Watch our Toy Cart Movie and Get Involved!

There are many reasons you or a loved one should consider volunteering at Oklahoma Children’s Hospital OU Health. No matter the reason, our volunteers help make the experience in our clinics and hospitals feel more normal, and help make a difference in the lives of our kids by simply giving their time. There are countless ways you can give back to patients and families at Oklahoma Children’s Hospital. For more ways to give or volunteer, visit or contact us at for general questions on giving.

Community donations help our volunteers provide meaningful programs, like the Toy Cart, which delivers more than 7,500 toys and gifts to kids and families all year long.
