Donations to Dr. Bear's Closet

Please note: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are only able to accept donations of approved items that are mailed/shipped or purchased through our online holiday wish list until further notice. Thank you for your understanding, patience and continued support during this time.


Thank you for your interest in supporting Children’s National this holiday season! We are accepting holiday donations until Dec. 22. Please note that the Volunteer Services office will be closed on Dec. 24 and 25. Your donations will be given to patients and family members during their hospital visit to provide comfort, offer distractions and to normalize the hospital setting during the holidays.

With patient safety being our top priority, we are taking an abundance of caution and have revamped our holiday donation guidelines with infection prevention in mind. These standards allow us to ensure the highest level of quality and safety for our patients.

Please carefully review our holiday wish list, donation guidelines, and FAQs below. Have a question? Please email us or call (202) 476-2062.
