Toys for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals – Toddler Toys

VTech DonationBrandy Ousley, the mother of one of our pediatric patients, was recently reminded of the importance of donating toys to her local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. When her toddler, Callyn, stayed at CHRISTUS Southeast Texas St. Elizabeth, they spent some time in the playroom and found that there weren’t many toys for preschool kids. “Because so many children have access to our toys, they get loved, played with, and worn out faster than they would in a home,” said Ashley Bares, Certified Child Life Specialist. “We are constantly seeking donations to replenish our resources as tired toys get removed from the playroom.” Ousley shared her story with friends and family and together they donated toys for preschool-age children. The toys they donated are all plastic and will be used in the playroom by toddlers just like hers. “I know how moms feel when their kids are in the hospital without anything to do,” said Ousley. “Even if Callyn doesn’t get to play with these toys, they will be available for other kids to enjoy.”
