Children’s hospitals and medical centers that specifically help young people often host drives for toys and art supplies. Seek out your local children’s hospital to find their wish list!
For Riley, drop off at the Simon Family Tower inside the front entrance 705 Riley Hospital Drive
Most places that have kids with busy hands would probably love any extra art supplies you’re not using. A good place to start would be to check with your local schools, women’s shelters, YMCAs, community centers, preschools, or churches.
