Generally, the Westside Community Center itself does not accept donations.

If you would like to donate to the pantry that is operated by Westside Cares here at the Community Center please see below.

There is also a list of places that accept in-kind donations as well.

Children’s Hospital Colorado In-Kind donations

Children’s Hospital Donations

At Children’s Hospital Colorado, we try our best to help our patients and families feel as welcome and comfortable as they would at home. We really rely on donations of new toys, books, stuffed animals, craft materials, and other items throughout the year, not just at the holidays.

These donations are used in the hospital’s numerous playrooms by our therapists as part of a patient’s treatment plan. They are also used to comfort and entertain a child during the hospital experience. Donations also make it possible for patients to select a gift following the completion of a procedure or to celebrate a significant event such as a birthday, holiday, or the end of treatment.
