Building a community of grateful families.
Children's National accepts books, toys, clothing, gift cards, and other non-medical items for our Dr. Bear's Closet. These donations are given to patients and family members during their hospital visit to provide comfort, offer distractions, and to normalize the hospital setting.
Did you know that some children with certain medical conditions, such as sickle cell anemia, need one to 10 units of blood per month or that one unit of blood can be used for as many as four of five children? The Blood Donor Center collects thousands of blood donations every year and provides essential services for Children's National patients. Learn how you can donate blood today!
