This year, the BJ Hughes Memorial Fund donated more than 400 stuffed animals to the HVCH ER/Urgent Care unit to give out to kids during their care (especially during the holiday season). The fund also made a donation of more than 200 toys in 2016.
This year the LHS Key Club assisted with the drive.
The stuffed animals were delivered to HVCH on Dec. 3rd, BJ’s birthday.
"We cannot thank the BJ Hughes Memorial Fund enough for this toy donation. These toys are used to give to children who need emotional support during visits to the Emergency Room, Urgent Care and during other tests. They provide comfort to the children and their families," Michelle Matheny, HVCH ER Director, said. "We appreciate the continued support of the Hughes family and all those who donated to the toy drive."
