The magic of the holiday season was in full force when the donations from the FOX40 Toy Drive were delivered to the hospital this morning. Truck load after truck load of toys and gifts were delivered and placed under the Christmas tree. There really are no words to truly express the depth of our gratitude and the positive impact this community event makes on the patients, families and staff at Shriners Hospital.
Our team of ‘Santa’s Helpers’ a.k.a. Child Life, go to work immediately, selecting individual gifts for each of our patients and wrapping them for Santa to deliver to the kids on Christmas morning. And the holiday gifts keep on giving even after the Christmas season is over. These donations also provide our patients with presents on their birthdays and presents for Christmas in July, activities for bedside bags upon admission as well as keeping our playroom stocked with new toys and games throughout the year.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you FOX40 News, Star 106.5, KHOP @ 95.1fm, Big O Tires, UNISUN Solar and Papa Murphy’s Pizza for making holiday wishes come true for our kids Shriners Hospitals for Children – Northern California.
