Schedule your holiday shopping and throw a few extra toys in the cart for the kids at Connecticut Children’s!

For 22 years, troopers from Troop H of the Connecticut State Police have been as busy as Santa’s elves carrying out their December Toy Drive.

With assistance from Ambulance Service of Manchester (ASM) and Aetna Ambulance, the troopers have collected more than half a million toys and more than $200,000 in donations to benefit children who find themselves in the Emergency Department at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center during the holidays and throughout the year.

Children who have to visit Connecticut Children’s can be overwhelmed with the unknown. Toys collected by the State Police provide a welcome distraction to children and help encourage communication between a care provider and patient. Making a donation today helps provide smiles all year long. Sometimes a toy can be the one thing a child remembers about their visit – a memory you can create.

Help kids like Siaana

Thankful. Life-altering news, yet one sentiment remained. Thankful.

An unexpected visit to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center led to a battery of tests. And then came the diagnosis: a congenital heart defect. Ten-month-old Siaana would require emergency open-heart surgery.

Her parents spent the week of Thanksgiving in the intensive care unit where Siaana began her journey to recovery… feeling thankful that their baby girl would have the chance to grow up.
