Voluntary work at CHU Sainte-Justine

Material donations

Recreational materials are accepted as donations, which are then passed on to the hospital’s educators and daycare workers. The role of these individuals is to entertain and amuse patients in the game rooms. When you give a material gift, you are making sure that many children can have fun using them.


We ask that all materials be new and still in their original packaging so that they can be used in a practical manner. The following recommendations will surely bring a lot of joy to the young and young at heart!

  • Crafting materials (crayons, paper, colouring books, beads, etc.);
  • Play-dough;
  • Books, novels, and comic strips ;
  • Puzzles;
  • Building blocks like Mega Blocks;
  • Memory games;
  • Board games.

We do not recommend

  • Noisy games or games with violence;
  • Games with tiny pieces that can be swallowed;

Used items

We cannot accept any used materials or second-hand toys. Due to our patients’ fragile state of health, we cannot risk exposing them to any used items. It is, therefore, preferable to bring them to a charity organization for underprivileged children and families. To prevent the spread of infections and protect the health of our patients, we can only accept new items in their original packaging.
