Wish list for the Center for Medically Fragile Children at Providence Child Center

Your donations benefit our medically-fragile children by providing art supplies for use in recreation therapy. Toys that make noise, vibrate or light up to produce a sensory experience for our children are especially appreciated. We are unable to accept stuffed animals. Items that are in bold are in greatest need.

For further information, contact Kerry Brown, recreation therapy director, via email or call 503-215-2826.
