21st Annual Timmons Toy Jam a Huge Success
21st Annual Toy Jam Toy Drive
This year’s annual Timmons of Long Beach Toy Jam Toy Drive was a huge success! This event is an amazing charitable event for anyone with a loving heart for children with life-threatening illnesses. This event happens once a year and is a great way to brighten the day of the kids at MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach. They go through some scary procedures without a hand to hold, so a toy or stuffed animal may be just what they need to face those fears.
Anyone who wanted to contribute in this charitable event could bring a new, unwrapped toy to Timmons of Long Beach by October 11th.
This year, you can even donate toys and gifts online via their Amazon Wishlist! Items will be delivered directly from you to the hospital. Follow this link to their wish list: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3FTQ56LVL0UC0
This event is HUGE for both the kids and their families. It helps children cope with hospitalization by enabling them to forget about being in the hospital for a while, and to feel special. Extra toys that are collected are placed in (what we refer to as) The Magic Closet of Toys for future kids to select a special gift. This is the prime time for the closet to be nearing empty because most of the big donations happen in December.
