The TCPS Elementary Student Activity Council and High School representatives, along with Elementary Vice-Principal Mrs. Bowerbank, graciously presented Ms. Atkinson, Child Life Specialist of the Markham Stouffville Hospital Children’s Ward, with several large bags full of toys. For several years, the students, parents and staff at TCPS have enthusiastically participated in our Christmas Toy Drive.
Below is the thank you letter from Ms. Atkinson:
…On behalf of the children, families, and staff at Oak Valley Health’s Markham Stouffville Hospital, I would like to sincerely thank you for your generous toy drive for children in the hospital.
Our families and staff are so grateful to receive the toys. Knowing that they are donated by members of our generous community who are cheering them on from home to get better really means a lot to them.
These toys also help children cope and play when they are in the hospital and we are so grateful to have them to help make their stay brighter.
Thank you for taking the time to lead and organize such a great initiative for our children and their families. We look forward to your donation each year and have been able to give them out throughout the whole year, not just over the holidays.
One of the brightest parts of the holidays is people like you. And your gift made it all the more special. Thank you so much!
Wishing you all a wonderful 2023!
Markham Stouffville Hospital
