15th Annual Operation Scribble – Get Details Here
Being a child in the hospital isn't easy. It's even harder when you have to be in the hospital over the holidays. Want to spread a some joy to these special kids? Then join us for the 15th Annual Operation Scribble, Thursday, December 12th from 6:00am to 6:00pm at Blain's Farm and Fleet. Bring along a box of new crayons, coloring books, unwrapped toys, you get the idea. The good people at Crayons 4 Kids will create gift bags full of age-appropriate toys and distribute them to the children on Christmas. Don't have time to stop for a toy? No problem! Blain's Farm and Fleet's Toyland is open, for your convenience, and as always, cash donations are accepted.
This isn't just to help the kids have a Christmas while in the hospital. These toys, games, and books help the staff, as well. They keep a patient distracted for a test or procedure that requires them to remain still (and that's hard for anyone, let alone a child), and the parents get a break, as well. The money raised goes to purchase needed therapeutic toys, such as instruments for music therapy, or special rockers for the NICU. There is no donation too small.
