Thank you for your generous consideration of donating new toys, books and other gifts to children at ErinoakKids.
These gifts are essential items that are used by our clinicians, therapists, and families to support ongoing development. Book and toy donations also help supplement the Longo Family Resource Centres, which provide families access to:
- A family lounge
- Resource Library
- Toy Lending Library
- Free Wi-Fi
- Therapeutic items for purchase
- Activities and craft sessions for kids
We are only able to accept NEW, unwrapped items on our wish lists provided below due to our infection control and health and safety guidelines. Some of our children have fragile immune systems, and therefore we are unable to accept gently used or previously owned items. For the safety and privacy of our children and families, please understand that donors are not permitted to hand out gifts personally to the children.
Guidelines and Wish Lists
Please note that in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and to help ensure the safety of clients, families and staff, we are only accepting toy and book donations shipped directly to our office. We look forward to the day we can connect with our generous community in person once more.
We have set up an Amazon Wish List, with clinician approved books and toys. When you check out, you will be prompted to choose our address for shipping.
If you have any questions, or would like complete list of accepted toy and book donations, contact Fiona D'Silva-Coelho, Manager, Annual Giving, at 416-418-8289 or email@example.com
Auction and prize donations
ErinoakKids is very grateful to hold and participate in a variety of events in the community throughout the year. Many of these opportunities have an auction or prize component. If your business or organization would like to donate an item, please contact Fiona D'Silva-Coelho, Manager, Annual Giving, at 416-418-8289 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
If you have a piece of art you would like to be considered, please complete the artwork donation form. If you require a tax receipt for your donation, a professional, third-party appraisal must be completed and submitted with your artwork donation form.
Donation of works of art to ErinoakKids are used in the following ways:
If the piece of art meets environmental, health and safety guidelines, it may be placed within one of the three ErinoakKids sites. The artwork must be original, meet sensory requirements and recognize cultural differences of those visiting ErinoakKids.
The piece of art may be sold with the profits from the sale used to support ErinoakKids' mission.
