Donating Books and Toys



Book donations

Our long-established Ready 2 Read literacy program stocks shelves throughout the hospital with books for children. Volunteers read donated books to inpatients at MassGeneral for Children at North Shore Medical Center. Books are also available to families who are waiting for appointments. Children are encouraged to take books home with them when they leave the hospital. Call 978.354.2776 to learn how you can donate books.

Game and toy donations


Donations of games and toys are gratefully accepted. Please remember that all items must be new. Due to our infection control policies, gifts of stuffed animals are discouraged. If you have any questions, call 978.354.2715.
