The date for this great event will be on Wednesday, December 19, 2019.   Presents will be delivered to The University of Vermont Children’s Hospital by members of the participating agencies and Santa. 

If you would like to donate and can't make the open house please contact:

  • Firefighter Jason Paul (201) 925-2156 or

If you are willing to donate a toy, we would prefer they be unwrapped.  Any donated toys will be accepted; however the hospital has identified some specific areas of needed toys.  The toys include the following:

  • Infants:  Rattles and mobiles.
  • Toddlers:  Musical toys, pop-up toys, stand & walk toys, large blocks, stacking toys and trains.
  • School Age:  Legos, art kits (jewelry making, painting, etc.) and athletic gear (balls, clothes, etc.).
