Service Projects, Donations & Eagle ProjectsPrimary Children's relies on the generous support of individuals and community groups to contribute items for patients and families to use while staying at the hospital.

If you or your community group are interested in making or collecting items to donate please see the suggestion lists below. For questions, email Marie Hendriksen or call (801) 662-5968. 

Donation deliveries:
Donations can be delivered to the north information desk on the first floor.  Donors may park briefly in the north circle while dropping off a donation.  Please complete a donation form so we can appropriately thank you.  We are grateful for our generous community!

Please Note:
It is hospital policy that items donated for patients not be identified with donor information or personal sentiments (name, address, social media links, or stories, etc.). We kindly request any notes of encouragement be generic and hopeful in nature (i.e. "have a good day," "you are wonderful," "you are brave," or "thinking of you"). We discourage messages such as "get well soon" or messages with religious overtones. 

In the hospital, infections are always a risk. To protect our patients, we are no longer accepting used items. Additionally, due to federal privacy laws and security policies, donors are not able to deliver gifts to patients or families.
