Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Virtual Holiday Toy Drive
This holiday season certainly brings the collective hardships endured throughout the year into clear focus. But it also shines a light on people’s capacity for generosity, empathy, and compassion. It’s in that spirit that we sought an opportunity to bring some holiday magic to those in need of it.
2020 has no doubt been a tough year for any child but especially those precious kids who will spend the holidays in the hospital. And every year, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) runs a massive toy drive to bring joy and smiles to those young patients and their families. This year they pivoted to pull together an all-virtual drive, made possible by monetary donations.
Through CHOP’s Virtual Toy Drive, MSS was able to create a custom page to collect donations on behalf of our team members and their networks. Whether through opening their wallets by donating, opening their minds by spreading the word, or opening their hearts by keeping these sweet souls top of mind, our team members came together to support CHOP’s mission. In total we raised $2015 between our staff and a company match donation. All of the money was used by the hospital’s Child Life team to buy toys and books and crafts.
