September 2020 update: Children’s National Hospital has received a tremendous amount of support from the community regarding donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other critical supplies. Thanks in large part to your generosity, we are no longer collecting donations of PPE and cloth masks.
The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented strain on our caregivers and resources. Children's National is accepting supply donations to support our efforts, our patients and our dedicated staff members. Individuals and companies can support Children’s National Hospital by donating supplies in the following ways:
Donations can be dropped off on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. at our main campus, located at 111 Michigan Ave NW, Washington, DC, 20010, in the Lean/Construction Trailer Lot. When traveling down Michigan Ave, look for a gravel parking lot on your right immediately after the parking garage entrance. Please pull into the drive and call 202-476-3661 upon arrival.
Please continue to check back, as additional hours will be added. Donations dropped off at the main campus outside of the posted hours will not be accepted. If you have a large amount of supplies, please complete this form, and we will contact you with additional information.
