To benefit sick and injured children during their time in the hospital, The Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Sacred Heart has launched a Christmas in July Toy Drive. The Children’s Hospital is seeking donations of toys for its playrooms and child life program, as well as to offer patients at the bedside. For infection control and safety reasons, items must be new, and toys must be washable (plastic or wood). Please no toys with violent themes.
The following items represent the hospital’s areas of greatest need:
· Infant rattles/toys/teethers
· Toddler toys
· Disney movies
· Light up toys
· Musical toys
· 8 pack and 16 pack crayons
· Xbox 360 controllers
· Xbox 360 games (rated E)
· Individual matchbox/hot wheel cars
Donations for the Christmas in July Toy Drive can be dropped off at the information desk in the lobby of The Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Sacred Heart, which is located at 5151 N. Ninth Avenue in Pensacola. Donation receipts will be provided. For information, call 850-416-4363.
