Donate Toys & Supplies

Cool Kids Campaign is always in need of a variety of items for our Learning Center. The list below is not all inclusive – if you have an idea for something we may be able to use, please suggest it. Due to the sterile environment which we must maintain here at the Learning Center, please consider that most items (such as for kitchen, rec room, tutor rooms) must be new or near new.

Your generosity is always appreciated – thank you. To donate Wish List items email Lauren.

We also include encouragement cards for children and their siblings in the care packages. The cards can range with the age / writing level of the child. We’ve seen younger kids draw encouraging artwork or make bracelets that spell out the Cool Kid’s name, while older kids write more traditional “Get Well” cards. We do ask that any cards be kept unsealed as the staff must check them before mailing. Here is a guide to writing encouragement cards!

Amtrak Points and Air Miles

We are always looking for coach-class tickets to and from NYC and air miles to continental USA locations. If you have extra rewards points that you could turn into a free ticket (even one-way helps) they would be put to great use in a silent / live auction package!
