Make the holidays brighter for children across Arkansas by participating in the annual Festival of Stars Toy and Donation Drive and Radiothon.

 

On Friday, Dec. 9 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., you can drop off new toys at Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock at 6 Children’s Way, Professional Building 1.

 

You can also tune in to the radiothon on Alice 107.7, B98.5 and Cumulus stations to hear interviews with Arkansas Children’s patients and hospital staff. Call 501-907-5437 (KIDS) or 1-888-771-5437 to make a one-time gift to the Festival of Stars Radiothon or become a “Miracle Maker” by committing to a monthly donation to champion children.

 

On the day of the event, both toys and monetary donations will be accepted at the Arkansas Children’s Hospital campus. If you are not able to bring a toy but still want to help, you can donate or shop online at archildrens.org/festival now through Dec. 9.

 

The Festival of Stars Toy and Donation Drive and Radiothon is an effort to collect toys for patients spending the holiday season at Arkansas Children’s. Patients and families statewide will receive donated toys during the holidays as well as throughout the year.

 

On the evening of the event, Arkansas Children’s will announce the statewide total raised in toys and monetary donations.

To protect patients from infections, all donated items must be new, unwrapped and in original packaging. For patient safety, Arkansas Children’s is unable to accept riding toys of any kind.
