Holiday Donation Information

In an effort to protect our children and families, we are not able to accept in-person donations this holiday season. We are asking those who wish to contribute toys and other items to do so through the Wal-Mart Registry For Good or our Amazon Smile Charity Wish List (see info below). We will ensure that these online purchases are used to enhance the excitement and spirit of the season for our patients, while keeping them as safe as possible.

All gifts purchased online come to us anonymously. So, if you chose to donate, we encourage you to send us your name and order details by email to, so we can acknowledge your thoughtfulness. Wal-Mart or Amazon gift cards are also a great gift for families and can be sent to us by mail to: CHKD Development Office, 601 Children’s Lane, Norfolk, VA 23507. Cash donations can be made online here.

Wondering what to donate? Please browse our Amazon and Wal-Mart registries at the links below. 

Walmart Registry For Good

Make a hospitalized child smile by donating a gift through Walmart's online Registry for Good.

Purchase an item from the comfort of your home and it will be mailed directly to the hospital.
