Thousands of Toys Donated to Nicklaus Children's Patients During Spread Joy Toy Drive

Being a kid in the hospital is never easy, especially during the holidays. However, this year, an overwhelming number of people contributed to our Spread Joy Toy Drive, making this a record-breaking year for our Nicklaus Children’s Hospital patients.

Thanks to the generosity of so many caring community members, nearly 13,000 toys and gifts were donated to our patients, valued at $314,800, plus volunteers gave nearly 330 hours of their time to make it all happen. Each patient woke up on Christmas morning with a bundle of gifts, tailored to their age group and interests, and enough extra toys were collected to celebrate every patient’s birthday throughout 2019.
