For 19 years, HUFF Realty has held a toy drive for Shriners Hospitals for Children. Each year we are able to provide both monetary and toy donations to this great cause. 

The Cincinnati Shriners Hospital is a 30-bed hospital dedicated to the treatment of pediatric burns as well as specializing in plastic and reconstructive conditions such as cleft lip and palate. All care is provided regardless of the families’ ability to pay. Upon admission, every child receives several toys that provide entertainment and comfort during their treatment. 

Shriners Hospitals for Children is changing lives every day through innovative pediatric specialty care, world-class research and outstanding medical education. Their 22 facilities, located in the United States, Canada and Mexico, provide advanced care for children with orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate. Shriners Hospitals for Children is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization and relies on the generosity of donors to continue improving the lives of children.


Due to strict infection control precautions, we can only accept NEW gifts and monetary donations.

Please keep in mind:

  • 70% of patients are boys
  • 50% of patients are teenagers ages 11-18

Helpful Information

Small toys and games that can be used in a wheelchair or bed are preferred for patients who have limited physical mobility. Due to airline luggage restrictions, avoid large items. Games and books that depict violence and toy weapons or adult themes and language are not accepted. Sharp, glass or breakable items are not accepted.

Patient privacy regulations (HIPPA) prevent us from allowing donors to personally distribute toys to the children. Thank you for understanding.
