New, unused lunch boxes, preferably the soft-sided style with a zipper, are needed for local pediatric patients.

The lunch boxes are to be used by patients in the pediatric bone marrow transplant/hematology/oncology clinic at the University of Arizona Medical Center — Diamond Children's to carry their numerous medications, as they better allow nursing staff to educate families and ensure proper dosing.

Donation boxes will be set up through August in the UA Medical Center's university campus main lobby, the Diamond Children's lobby, the north campus lobby at 3838 N. Campbell Ave. (near East Allen Road), the UA Cancer Center's Orange Grove Oncology Clinic Lobby, 1891 W. Orange Grove Ave., and the Pediatric Wilmot Clinic, 535 N. Wilmot Road.
