"We really appreciate all of our donors who make the holiday season brighter with their gifts."
Sacramento, Calif. (PRWEB) November 22, 2016
To make the donation of toys and other gifts easier for generous businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals who would like to make the season brighter for hospitalized children, UC Davis Children's Hospital is offering donors the opportunity to drive up and drop off donations for the holidays.
The holiday toy drive will be held at the circular driveway of the UC Davis MIND Institute, 2825 50th St., Sacramento. The drop-off opportunity will be held from Tuesday, Dec. 20 through Friday, Dec. 23 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Donors dropping off donations will be greeted in the driveway.
"We really appreciate all of our donors who make the holiday season brighter with their gifts," said Diana Sundberg, manager of the UC Davis Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy Department. "The kindness of donors will make an important difference in the lives of many families who have a sick child in the hospital this time of year."
The gifts will be given to hospitalized children during the holidays and throughout the year to mark the end of treatment and for completing tests and other procedures.
Toys and gifts also will be used in hospital playrooms and waiting areas throughout the year. Please note: Even slightly used toys cannot be accepted because of infection-control precautions.
