NYGH's Annual Toy Drive

Help bring a smile to a child's face this holiday by taking part in North York General Hospital's annual Holiday Toy Drive from now until December 14.

Please donate new, unwrapped toys to the General site's (4001 Leslie St.) gingerbread donation box, located in the Torokvei Atrium (south lobby) until Friday, December 14.

For infection control and the safety of our patients, we are only able to accept donations that are new.

Unfortunately, we are not able to accept gently used or previously owned items. No paperback books, playdough, toys with small parts, toys with any fabric, puzzles, stuffed animals or clothing.
