Ty has been kind enough to donated 6,000 plush beanie stuffed animals to our organization! These stuffed animals will be used in our emergency department gift bags and will service 6,000 kids and families in emergency departments that we work with in New York and Florida. We are always in need of these stuffed animals and we can't thank Ty enough for their generosity and willingness to help us help others.
More about our emergency department gift bag program: Each bag contains a plastic bag, crayons, stuffed animal, coloring book, a hand made get well card by a volunteer. The gift bags are made by children and young adult volunteers every month in New York and Florida. These gift bags are dropped off at the hospitals we work with every month. We pack 1,000 bags a month currently at our volunteer bag packing events and that number is growing as we expand. The goal is to make hospitals a less scary place while teaching the youth of America the importance of service to others.
