Donate to the Children

It’s easy, it’s fun, and it’s an extremely fulfilling experience.

In only seven years of reaching out to the Anthem, North Valley and Flagstaff communities, we have been able to donate over 29,000 new toys and gifts, benefiting the kids in Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Enthusiasm for S4SC and helping sick, hurt and abused children continues to grow every year as numbers tell a very hopeful story. From 2013 through 2021, donors and donations have grown every year. Our original donors have donated every year, and they donate more every year.

Donating can be done in several ways.

  1. Send us your financial donation and we will go buy the toys for you. Make your check out to “Smiles For Sick Children” and mail to Brian Billideau, 2114 W. Legends Way, Anthem, AZ. 85086.
  2. Purchase your toys and then drop them off at any one of our several “Toy Drop Off” locations or contact us and we will come by your home or business and pick up your toy donation.

Donating over 29,000 toys and gifts the last 7 years is a great accomplishment, but with an estimated 20,000 children being admitted to Phoenix Children’s Hospital every year, the need to raise funds to ensure all these children receive a new toy is greater than ever. All these children, and their parents, hope you’ll show your support with a donation today.

So please send what you can, $10, $25, $100 or more, or drop off you toys donation at any of our toy drop locations and thanks for thinking of the children at PCH this year and in the future.
