In memory of Michael Malone, on his 15th Birthday, Team Michael presents the 8th 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 outbreak, we have decided not to host our traditional block party celebration. However, the need has never been greater. The stress on the children and their families not only dealing with cancer, but now the virus as well, is extraordinary. So this year we are asking for toys and 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.
Online gift cards are welcome. Target gift cards are encouraged. If you plan to mail or drop off toys, here is a list from the two hospitals: art supplies, craft kits, video games, play dough sets, games, over the door basketball hoops, character play sets, model magic sets, STEM activities (magnet building and slime kits), and ALL size Legos (Marvel themed the most requested). 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 these prize closets with special gifts for the rest of the year.
Thank you for all you have done and will do. Your donations will bring so much joy to these kids, and we are eternally grateful for all of your support.
With love and hope,
