JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

The public is invited to participate in the "Christmas in July" toy drive for Wolfson Children's Hospital. 

You can donate new, unwrapped toys from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday.  There are several drop-off locations: Wolfson Children's Hospital Rotunda, Baptist Clay Medical Campus, Baptist medical Center Beaches, Baptist Medical Center Nassau, Baptist Medical Center South. 

Click here for a wish list.  You can also participate in the Christmas in July Virtual Toy Drive by making an online donation.

Wolfson's toy supply typically dwindles during the summer months.  New, unwrapped toys collected through the "Christmas in July" toy drive will restock the hospital’s playrooms and teen room, and help hospitalized children celebrate birthdays and other special occasions throughout the year.

Wolfson Children’s Hospital treats more than 60,000 children each year in the North Florida and South Georgia region, using toys and art supplies to help soothe, distract and ease the anxieties of children of all ages during treatment for illness and injuries.
