  • Smith Smiles Toy Donations is a family run 501c3 nonprofit organization bringing toys, games, craft supplies, and other items to children ages birth to 18 years old who are healing in the hospital. Smith Smiles began after our daughter was in and out of the hospital multiple times showing us how toys helped her heal more quickly. Donating items helps take the fears away for a while and helps with the healing process allowing families to come together making the hospital stay more enjoyable for the patient and supports the needs of the hospital therapeutic play area as well. Since 2016, Smith Smiles has donated to 21 states (and counting) and 2 countries approximately 13,500 toys.
