Because of the ongoing restrictions in place to safeguard patient's health during the COVID-19 pandemic, areas such as Kyle Rudolph's Endzone, the Zucker Family Suite & Broadcast Studio, and many other areas generally used for recreation have all been closed or greatly limited. In addition, many items generally made available for patient/family use are now in short supply as they are not being re-used. TB1Fund in partnership with Carousel Motor Group (CMG) are holding their 2nd Annual Toy/Book/Game Drive, running from July 12 through July 21.
Child Life Specialists who are working to meet the mental, emotional, and developmental needs of the patients and families, say funding for additional toys, games, books, and comfort items is critical at this time. For example, two-player board games and educational books are important as families are struggling with isolation while practicing social-distancing in the hospital setting.
Due to restrictions and limitations on visitors and deliveries to Masonic Children's Hospital, we have expanded our presence this year by partnering with CMG and their (7) Dealerships in an effort to increase the volume of toys/activities we can supply to Masonic Children's Hospital. TB1F along with members of the CMG Dealerships will deliver all the toys to the hospital the last week in July.
You can help in one of three ways:
1) Drop a new toy/book/game/gift card off at any CMG Dealership during the drive to donate window of July 12 through July 21.
2) Shop online and have a new toy/book/game/gift card shipped directly to BMW of Minnetonka (this location will accept all online orders)
3) Make a donation to TB1Fund that can be used to procure items of need - click HERE to donate.
Brax has created "Wish Lists" on both Amazon & Target to make things extremely easy for anyone who has no idea what is currently a "hot" commodity in the hospital. Use this as a guide and feel free to do your own thing too - get creative and have fun with it!
Thank you to everyone who is able to help at this time and please know that something as small as a new toy/book/game is making a BIG difference in brightening the day of kid and/or family confined to a hospital room during this unusually challenging time.
