Play is an important part of the healing process and helps children cope with the stress and challenges of hospitalization. The donations collected will be given to pediatric patients and family members during their hospital visit to provide comfort, offer distractions and to normalize the hospital setting. Toys help us bring pleasure and laughter to pediatric patients. Being in the hospital can be very difficult at any time of year.
Your generosity allows us to spread happiness and warmth to pediatric patients and families and help brighten their day. It helps alleviate some of the anxiety and distress that children and their families often face when dealing with illness.
Joy, delight, and excitement during these difficult times are known to be therapeutic. Receiving a donated toy can significantly improve the hospital experience for the entire family.
