Hello Good People of Stoneham,
It is time again for Emily Cashell’s Toy Drive for Boston’s Children’s Hospital and the Jimmy Fund Clinic. This is Emily’s Third Annual Toy Drive and she wants to thank everyone for their support over the past two years. Emily holds this drive because she remembers spending the holidays at Boston’s Children’s Hospital and the Jimmy Fund Clinic while her sister was sick and fighting her winning battle with leukemia. Emily thought of how nice it would be to help children that are spending their Holidays as a patient at Boston’s Children’s Hospital or receiving their cancer treatments at Jimmy Fund Clinic. Please consider donating a new unwrapped toy to Emily’s Toy Drive and help bring a smile to a child’s face this Holiday Season.
I am very proud of my daughter Emily’s initiative and dedication to helping out the Children and their families that are affected by serious illness and injuries that are being treated at Boston’s Children’s Hospital and the Jimmy Fund Clinic. At 10 years old Emily has shown an incredible amount of maturity through her actions and dedication to helping others in need. Our family remembers how difficult a time this was for us while spending the Holiday Season at Boston’s Children’s Hospital and shopping for the Holidays was the last thing on our minds and near impossible to do. Thanks to the actions of family, friends, and complete strangers our children were able to celebrate our Holiday of Christmas. Santa must have made a direct trip from the North Pole to our house. My wife and I still cannot express our sincere gratitude to everyone that made our children’s Christmas so special at a time when the world had almost stopped for us. Your Donation of a New Toy or Gift will take some stress off the parents that cannot get out shopping for their family do to their child’s illness and hospitalization during this Holiday Season.
Emily has put out Toy Boxes for collections in many locations in several towns.
