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 third year the family selected HVCH for the toy donation drive, to help soothe those young patients during difficult encounters while visiting the hospital.
Again this year, the family hosted a dinner and toy drive at their home and an extremely generous amount of items was donated totaling $2,900.
“The toys were collected in honor of what would have been Morgan’s 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, primary care and orthopedic offices of the Hocking Valley Medical Group, to utilize for young patients when needed.
“The Emergency Department and Urgent Care would like to once again thank the family of Morgan Enderle for their generous toy donation. They have been helping to put smiles on our pediatric patients for the last several years through their enormous donation of toys,” Michelle Matheny, Director of Emergency Services, said.
