2011 Christmas in July a Big Success

2011 Christmas in July a Big Success

Thank you Tampa Bay for your support during the 2011 "Christmas in July" donation drive!

The monetary donations, toys, games, arts and crafts supplies and other activities we received will be used to help entertain and comfort hospitalized kids throughout the year. Since medical settings are a new, unfamiliar world for most children, providing them with an opportunity to play can bring a momentary escape from the hospital experience and allow them to focus on having fun instead of their illness. And after all, a child’s job is to play, even when they're in the hospital.
