Toy Drive Needs Your Donations

NorthBay Healthcare is accepting donations of unwrapped toys for its annual holiday party Dec. 21 for children whose families use the NorthBay Center for Women's Health.

You can drop off your unwrapped toy in a bin at Green Valley Administration Center, the Hilborn Administration Center, NorthBay VacaValley Hospital, VacaValley Health Plaza, Gateway Health Care Plaza, NorthBay Medical Center (with the valet) and Urgent Care now through Dec. 14.

Toys can be for babies up through children age 12.

Each year for the past 15 years, up to 225 children have received toys from the one-day holiday event, and have a chance to meet with Santa. Employees volunteer as elves to run a holiday craft table and guide children and their families through the third-floor medical office which becomes Santa's Workshop for the day.

Don't have time to shop for a toy? Consider making out a check to NorthBay Healthcare Foundation, with a note in the memo field indicating CWH Holiday Celebration.
