HVCH receives generous toy donation

Hocking Valley Community Hospital recently received a generous donation of patient comfort items in memory of Morgan Lynnae Enderle from her family.

This is the second year the family selected HVCH for the toy donation drive, to help soothe those young patients during difficult encounters while visiting the hospital.

New this year, the family hosted a dinner and toy drive at their home and more than 17 boxes of items were donated in the amount of $1,500.

“The toys were collected in honor of what would have been Morgan’s 26th birthday.  We hope to keep her memory alive by bringing a little joy into the lives of children who come to HVCH for treatment. Once again, thanks to family and friends for their generosity to help make this a successful event,” said Ginny Hamilton, Morgan’s grandmother, and Heather Hughes, Morgan’s mother.

The new toys, including coloring books, games, stuffed animals, dolls, trucks and books, were distributed to the Laboratory, Radiology, Emergency and Urgent Care departments at the hospital and at the pediatric office of Dr. Mark Scarmack and Fallon Magdich-Ritchey, NP-C, to utilize for young patients when needed.

“On behalf of the Urgent Care and Emergency Department, I would like to thank the family of Morgan Enderle for their generous toy donation. The toys will be given to those pediatric patients needing a little comfort and cheer during their visit. It warms our hearts to accept such a thoughtful donation in memory of Morgan,” Michelle Matheny, Director of Emergency Services, said.
