New Contactless Christmas Donation Process

Thank you for thinking of the patients and families at Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. Your desire to donate is greatly appreciated. The Child Life Department uses play and expressive arts to help meet the developmental, psychosocial, emotional, and educational needs of our patients. These experiences and opportunities can help children to cope and adjust to illness and hospitalization.

We are no longer accepting in-person donations. Donation questions and arrangements can be directed to the Child Life Department by contacting Stacie Kmetz at 239-343-6603 or

Donating Guidelines

In a hospital setting, safety and infection prevention are of utmost importance. With patient safety being our top priority, we are taking an abundance of caution and have revamped our donation guidelines with infection prevention in mind. These standards allow us to ensure the highest level of quality and safety. Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida has implemented a contactless donation process. This allows donors to purchase items of greatest need from our gift registry, and they are shipped directly to us from the store.
