The Root Salon is hosting a toy drive!
This holiday season we have decided to support the volunteers at Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s annual toy and book drive. Now through December 23rd, bring and un-wrapped toy or book to the salon and receive a free deep conditioning treatment!
Donating toys, books, clothing or family items makes a big difference for patients and their families when they need it most. As a hospital, Phoenix Children’s has a few donation guidelines:
Toys are given to patients by our Child Life Team to celebrate holidays, birthdays and achievements in their treatment. These donations also help supply our playrooms or help patients through particularly tough days.
- To ensure the well-being of their patients, the hospital has a few guidelines regarding what can be accepted:
- Due to infection control guidelines, all toy and stuffed animal donations must be brand new with tags still attached and in their original packaging
- They cannot accept toys that are violent in nature or have weapon accessories
- They cannot accept toys that include any food or candy
Each year, unwrapped new toys are accepted from toy drives held by companies, community organizations and individual donors. Every child admitted to the hospital over the December holidays will receive a toy. Any holiday donations that are not distributed help sustain our ability to give toys to children in the hospital throughout the year.
We hope you will help us give to this amazing hospital and the children it serves![ssboost]
