Thousands of Hospitalized Children Benefit From Toy Drive

September 22, 2008
Thousands of sick children in 15 states received toys this summer as part of a seasonal campaign run by the National Committee for the Furtherance of Jewish Education, a Chabad-Lubavitch organization based in New York. The Toys for Hospitalized Children program, which began in 1953, this year relied on volunteers in Arizona, Arkansas, Minnesota, Michigan, California, Florida, Connecticut, Texas, Ohio, Colorado, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont and New Hampshire to distribute toys to patients of some 30 hospitals.
