In memory of Michael Malone, on his 16th Birthday, Team Michael presents the 9th Annual Team Michael Toy Drive, benefiting the oncology patients at Dallas Children’s and Cook Children’s. Given all of the ongoing issues with the Covid-19, we have decided not to host our traditional block party celebration. However, the need has never been greater. So this year we are asking for toys and Amazon gift card donations between now and June 7th. The smallest donation will still make a huge difference. Just like in prior years, we will make the deliveries to the hospitals immediately following June 7th.
This year we have created an online Amazon wish list to make things easier.
If you plan to shop outside of Amazon, here is a list from the two hospitals: art supplies, craft kits, play dough sets, games, over the door basketball hoops, character playsets, model magic sets, STEM activities (magnet building and slime kits), and ALL size Legos (Marvel-themed is the most requested). Toys can be mailed to 3905 Hanover, Dallas, 75225.
These patients need things they can play with, in bed or inside their hospital rooms, especially during this time. Hospitals are limiting the number of people who can visit, especially those who are undergoing treatments that suppress their immune systems. Crafts, games, and toys have never been more essential for these brave young boys and girls. Our goal is to fill the hospitals’ pediatric cancer prize closets with special gifts for the rest of the year.
With love and hope,
