UNM Children's Hospital Wish List

UNM Children’s Hospital Wish List

Many donors wish to give something that can help the children who are being treated at UNM Children’s Hospitals. To help donors select toys that are most needed we have provided a “wish list” of items.  We are always in need of new, unwrapped toys for children of all ages – from infant to 18 years old.  The items in bold are the most needed or requested by patients and families.

If you have any questions about donating toys for UNM Children’s Hospitals, please contact Kathryn Richards, Associate Development Director, at (505) 277-0568 or Kathryn.Richards@unmfund.org

Thank you for your generosity!
