The toys will then be transported to the hospital’s very own version of Santa’s Workshop, where staff will wrap the toys just in time for Santa Claus to deliver them on Christmas morning. Thanks to the generosity of many, donations received during the Holiday Toy Drive make it possible for the hospital to provide gifts to children hospitalized on their birthday. Donated games and toys also are used by patients and families participating in activities in the central play area.
“The FOX40 Holiday Toy Drive epitomizes the spirit of the holiday season – that special time of year when spirits are uplifted by acts of kindness and generosity.” shared Alan Anderson, Director of Development at Shriners Hospitals for Children – Northern California.
“The magic of the season comes to life when the toys are delivered to the hospital. Our team of ‘Santa’s Helpers’ 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. It is remarkable. 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,” says Anderson.
