The Carousel Center can only accept toys in original packaging.  

Here are some items you may consider:

Due to the limited number staff and the time it takes to sanitize toys after each visitor, we are limiting access to the toys in our waiting areas. We have added items to our AMAZON WISHLIST that may be provided to each child to keep busy and entertained while waiting AND they can take home with them. 


Donate or sponsor a delivered meal  to 8-10 (no more than ten in the office at any one time) hard-working staff and our partners – Dept of Social Services, Law Enforcement, District Attorney’s office.  (Sorry we can’t accept home cooked food, food must come from a licensed restaurant).  Contact Laurie Taylor for the best time/day to provide a meal.
