Stick with the Sick
‘Stick with the Sick’ Toy/Clothing Drive
Dear Families and Staff of Cochise Elementary,
Hi, our names are Anika Schmidgall, Addie Gehrke, Reagan Wells and Addison Beer and we are collecting gifts for children at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Donating toys, books, clothing or family items makes a big difference for patients and their families when they are in the hospital. We are not only inspired by one of our fellow students, Abri Bently, but also by a story about Katie through Ignite Hope. Even though it’s after the holidays, gifts are still distributed throughout the year to celebrate important childhood events including holidays, birthdays, treatment turning points, and to help kids through tough days. Below are a few donation guidelines:
- All donated toys/clothes must be new and in the original packaging with tags.
- For the health and safety of the patients, do not wrap the toys.
- Please avoid donating items such as: Play guns or war toys, latex balloons, candy, gum, or other food items and scary or violent action figures.
We hope that you will donate items for Phoenix Children’s Hospital in the box in front of the flagpole starting Wednesday, January 9th to Wednesday, January 30th.
Mrs. King’s Students
