Generous donations of new and handmade items never fail to bring comfort and smiles to our patients. If you’re an individual or a member of an organization looking to make a difference in your community, consider making Valley part of your community service commitment. Below are some examples of needed items:
“Best Medicine” Cart Donations
Scouting troops, students, local organizations and individuals regularly support Valley by donating homemade items to the hospital’s “Best Medicine” cart. Items from the cart, which include cards, bookmarks, crafting items and more, are distributed to patients by our volunteers.
Knitted or Crocheted Item Donations
Handmade items such as afghans, hats for newborns and cancer patients, and fleece lap robes are gratefully accepted and bring much comfort to patients and their families.
The volunteer department also accepts donations of new, acrylic yarn to make comfort items for our patients and their families.
Other Items for Patients
We welcome donations of new, unused items for our pediatric and senior patients. Books, games, playing cards, crayons and puzzles are just some of the items on their wish lists.
