From Nov 15 - Dec 15 please join the families of Wyatt, Phoenix, Sasha, Owen and Sawyer for a holiday toy drive for children at SickKids Hospital.
All of us know first hand how tough it is to have a child we love dearly in the hospital over the holidays and the smiles these toys bring and the warmth created for the kids and families.
Toys must be new for infection control and unwrapped and will be distributed by Child Life throughout the hospital. A list of needs by age group is below with a priority request for newborns and teens. Gift cards from major retailers are welcome too. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org - to get the address to mail a gift card, for assistance if you wish to help but cannot get to a drop-off or if your business is interested in donating or being a drop off location - please let us know!
Thanks to our participating businesses and to 99.9 Virgin Radio and Talk radio 1010 for the daily public service announcements promoting the Toy Drive!
Thank you and please spread the word!
The families of Wyatt, Owen, Sasha, Phoenix and Sawyer
