Bottomless Toy Chest delivers gifts to Sparrow Children’s Center Patients
Click here to see more photos. Santa, with some help from The Bottomless Toy Chest, delivered goodies to young Patients at the Sparrow Children’s Center today.
Stuffed animals, books, craft kits, Legos, remote-controlled cars, dolls, movies and more were delivered by the elves of The Bottomless Toy Chest, a Michigan based non-profit organization. The gifts were collected through toy drives, individual and corporate donations, as well as fund-raisers.
Each child was able to select a toy and a stuffed animal from the chests. For those unable to make it to the playroom, elves set off with a wagon full of toys to make room service calls.
The Bottomless Toy Chest is devoted to delivering art projects, crafts and interactive toys to hospitalized pediatric cancer patients. Its mission is to lift the spirits and promote a positive state of mind in young cancer patients.
For more than a century, Sparrow has been a leader in caring for children. The first hospital in mid-Michigan to offer a dedicated children's unit, Sparrow today is home to the region's only full-service pediatric emergency department. As the region's Children's Miracle Network hospital, Sparrow is able to provide families the most advanced technology and treatment options in pediatric and neonatal care.
