Gifts In Kind

Thank you for your support

Your gift in kind donation to Hurley Medical Center and Hurley Children’s Hospital can help make a hospital stay or procedure less stressful for our patients, and create a comforting and enjoyable hospital experience for our patients, their families and our dedicated Hurley staff. For the safety and well-being of our patients and families we ask that all donations follow these important guidelines:

  • All donations must be brand new, odor-free, and in original packaging

  • Name brand items are preferred for durability and safety


What should I know before making an in-kind donation?


All items must be new and need to be approved by a member of the Hurley Foundation staff before they can be accepted. Please call (810) 262-9667 or contact us via email at to provide the details of your gift. Please allow 5-7 business days lead time ahead of your intended delivery.

Do you have an updated list of items needed for young patients treated at Hurley Children’s Hospital?
