Most-needed toys and supplies (subject to change):

  • Crayons (24-pack)
  • Coloring books for preschool or elementary ages

Tributes and Memorial Donations

Instead of your traditional gift, a donation made in honor of your loved ones can put a smile on the face of a child in a hospital. Caitlin's Smiles will send a letter to those you designate indicating that a donation has been made in their honor.


Organize a Special Event

Join caring companies who organize special fundraising events such as holiday trees, craft drives, bake sales, sporting events and also dress-down days. Each event helps promote a spirit of team building among employees while giving smiles to some very special children.


Donate Things to Caitlin's Smiles

Office supplies — such as copy paper (of all colors), staplers, staples, 8.5 x 11 notepads, ziplock baggies (any size), and postage stamps — would be helpful, as well as gift cards for office supply companies. Toilet paper, tissues, paper towels, and cleaning supplies are also needed. Our volunteers donated over 20,000 volunteer hours last year, so we have a lot of people coming to our office to help!

We are constantly fundraising, and gift baskets and gift cards are always appreciated! We have a silent auction at our golf tournament and art auction; raffle items at our walk; bingo; and a bowling tournament.

We are always in a box shortage to pack hospital orders. The ones we use are approximately the size of a Xerox paper box. We do not use boxes that were used for food or hazardous materials. Please consider dropping off boxes from your work or sending us a bundle!


Support Caitlin's Smiles By Shopping Online

If you plan to shop online, you can make a difference by shopping through the List Caitlins Smiles (Dauphin) as your designated charity and we'll receive anywhere up to 37% of your purchases. Some popular stores on this website are: Oriental Trading Company, Amazon, EBay and Staples. Make sure to tell your friends and family and pass on this link:


Kids Helping Kids
