We deliver toys, books, and activity kits to our partner cancer hospitals to normalize the hospital environment and provide joy for patients. Toys and books also help pass time, making these donations essential to improving the childhoods of cancer patients. However, this program isn't limited to just toys; we also deliver necessities such as masks, pain medication, hospital equipment, etc. through this program based on hospital needs.
Through this CKF program, we send boxes of toys, books, and hospital equipment to over 60 hospitals worldwide. Donated items come from toy and book drives held by chapters and volunteers or are directly purchased from sites like Amazon.
Presently, outside of the US, we have been able to donate supplies to hospitals in Colombia, Pakistan, Canada, Bangladesh, and Mexico. We hope to continue expanding our international treatment facility reach.

About This Program

Cancer Kids First partners with many public charities, organizations, and companies to host toy/book drives. All toys and books we receive from these collections are then thoroughly checked to ensure that all items we ship to hospitals are new and disinfected. When we receive items that violate hospital guidelines or infection guidelines, we donate the items to other donation centers or nonprofits. 
Presently, due to COVID-19, Cancer Kids First is shipping most toys and books to hospitals directly through Amazon to avoid increased risks of infection.
20% of our funds are used towards this program. All toys and books are handpicked by our directors based on hospital wish lists. Our chapters also contribute to this program by partnering with local hospitals.


How Can You Help?

Whether you're a high school student, parent, or charity/business owner looking to help, you can host a CKF donation drive and do good for the childhood cancer community! Simply email us to get started.
By hosting a donation drive, you're responsible for organizing the drive (location set up, advertising, and collection) and mailing the items. We will help provide graphics and cover any outstanding shipping fees. Collected donations will either be sent to one of our partner hospitals or used in our care packages. Feel free to reach out with any questions!
