To Our Loyal Toy Donors
For our children, play is powerful, and La Rabida is fortunate to have supporters who understand that.
Each holiday season, countless supporters work diligently to organize toy drives for the benefit of our patients. We are grateful for the effort and want to advise you of another way to delight our young patients everyday of the year.
As play and entertainment technology change, so do the expectations of the children we serve -- especially older children in the hospital. However, many of their technology choices are expensive. Our goal is to build an inventory of electronic devices and games for our inpatient unit that will allow children to play virtually with others whether they are across the hall or across town.
If you plan to host a toy drive on behalf of La Rabida, consider collecting monetary donations that will allow us to buy equipment we need. Or, contact Child Life at 773.363.6700 ext. 4358 for suggestions.
