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 wish list until further notice. Thank you for your understanding, patience and continued support during this time.


Thank you for your interest in donating and supporting Children’s National Hospital! 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.

With patient safety being our top priority, we are taking an abundance of caution and have revamped our donation guidelines with infection prevention in mind. These standards allow us to ensure the highest level of quality and safety for our patients. Children's National Hospital has implemented a contactless donation process this year.
