DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Help brighten up a child’s stay at Dayton Children’s Hospital by donating to the Gift Drive-Thru on December 17 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

According to Dayton Children’s, each year the community gives generously to the children of the hospital, but this year they are limiting visitors to the site for the safety of family and staff. In partnership with Planes Moving and Storage, the hospital will organize a driving gift.

The drive-thru will take place at the Dayton Children’s Office Building at 241 Taylor Street. The hospital has asked when the donors arrive at the drive-thru, they stay in their car and open their trunk. To view items requested by Dayton Children, visit
