Bring Holiday Smiles to Children

“Thank you for remembering my children. Bless your kindness.”

- Ben R., Care Coordination Participant


Empty boxes decorated with gift wrapping paper and a familiar flyer announced the 2018 WellLife Network Care Coordination Toys for Tots Drive. Each day, generous staff contributed toys to help realize our goal of collecting toys for the children of the individuals we serve. This year, Anne Marie Kanable, Executive Assistant, obtained more than 160 toys and books from her friends and family.

WellLife Mobile Van Used to Deliver Gifts

A team of dedicated staff volunteers lovingly wrapped the donations. The toys and books were then distributed to clients in our Care Coordination program, schools and a family shelter in the poorest and highest crime areas in the city. For the first time, the WellLife Network Care Coordination van, driven by Huson Dobson, was used as the gift distribution center. Community members also received information about WellLife Network and services which could be beneficial to them.

The result of this wonderful holiday project is reflected in the smiles on the faces of children who will now have a gift to open on Christmas day, and a toy to preserve the innocence of their early years. We are proud to continue this holiday tradition and thank our staff who participated.

Ben and his daughter enjoy a special holiday surprise, delivered right to their neighborhood, by the WellLife Care Coordination mobile van.
