Organizing Another Event

After discussing the future of Mikey’s Helping Place in great detail, Mikey decided that our next philanthropic attempt should be a toy drive for the children in the Pediatrics Department of Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.  The hospital relies on donations to keep an ongoing toy box stocked for the children receiving services there.

Our goal is to make age-specific goody bags for children of all ages to receive upon being admitted to the hospital or upon having a significant outpatient procedure performed.  We are in the process of getting a specific wish list from the head of the Pediatric Foundation and would love to enlist your help with sponsorships.   Whether you are able to help with a monetary donation or by purchasing an item from the wish list, or simply by telling others about what we are trying to accomplish and praying for our success, you can help!

We will have more specifics about this event in the very near future as we finalize our plans with the Pediatric Foundation so please check back for information if you are interested in giving in any way.  We are also hoping to get a few businesses to donate promotional items such as pens, pencils, notepads, balls, etc., to add to the bags for the older children/teenagers if anyone knows of any generous business owners who would be willing to send us a few things.

We are so excited to start this new project with the hope of making each child’s stay at the hospital a little easier and we thank you so much for your past, present and future support of Mikey’s Helping Place.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions.
