Gifts In Kind


Gifts in kind can brighten the lives of many patients across the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service.

Instead of giving money to buy needed goods and services, you can opt to donate the goods directly to Wishlist and we will distribute the goods to those who need it most.

Examples of gifts in kind:

  • Knitted bears
  • Knitted beanies & blankets
  • Boxes of crayons
  • Sensory pillows for dementia patients
  • Auction prizes for Wishlist events - such as gift vouchers etc.

We appreciate all gifts in kind - large and small - but please bear in mind that second-hand toys and goods cannot be accepted due to the strict health guidelines of the SCHHS hospital facilities.

The Paediatric Critical Care Unit and Paediatric Emergency Medicine Service are in urgent need of distraction therapy toys.
