Taking Care of the Child This Holiday Season with Toy Donations
PHS is wrapping up our 20th birthday celebration year with a haul of toys to donate to kids in need. Each month throughout the year of 2010 PHS employees collected and donated various items to local food shelves and charitable organizations. December was no exception, and Sharing Care coordinators knew immediately what December was going to be all about– TOYS!
Every child should get a toy for the holidays. From November 23 to December 19, PHS employees and family caregivers made sure that was possible by collecting more than 300 toys that were donated to the annual Toys for Tots drive. A team of PHS Sharing Care Volunteers dropped off the toys to the KARE11 tent on December 19. The toys are currently being distributes to families and children in need throughout the Twin Cities.
During this family-filled season we are happy and grateful to ensure your medically-fragile kids stay at home, where they belong, this holiday. We are looking forward to an exciting 2011 and all the fun it will bring.
How does your family celebrate the holiday season? Do you have any fun traditions you’d like to share with PHS? We’d love to hear from you.Originally published: December 23, 2010
