UMass IT Toy Drive for Baystate Children's Hospital
December 5—December 9, 2016 9:00 am-5:00 pm
This Toy Drive is special to me because this year my son Derek was diagnosed with a small heart defect that required open heart surgery. We spent a week in the hospital and I was able to see firsthand how much joy these toys bring to children during their stay.
Derek recovered fully and is now an energetic 3-year-old who tries to keep up with his older brother. Although our visit was a short one, there are many children who spend weeks or months in the hospital and I feel our donations could really brighten their time there.
