Hope Children's Hospital Toy & Gift Card Drive

11/25/2023 10:27 am

It has been a long tradition at Prospect School to collect toys for the Pediatric Cardiology and Oncology Departments at Hope Children's Hospital. With the help of Kelly Awick, retired Prospect Teacher, it is our great pleasure to continue this tradition.

Due to the fragile state of the patients the hospital is only able to accept NEW toys in original packaging. We will also be collecting and delivering Amazon and Target gift cards to the hospital to help families whose children are hospitalized this holiday season.

Drop-off Locations: Prospect School Lobby, Mrs. Nolin's Room 114, Mrs. Matt's Room 206.


Gift cards will be accepted in the Office, to Mrs. Nolin, or Mrs. Matt.

Last Day of Collection: Wednesday, December 20th ~ we appreciate your donations!
