Tree of Hope collection at Maple Lake

Can you help us put a smile on the face of a child this holiday season?

Tree of Hope has been collecting toys for children in the hospital since 1990. In 2013, 32 hospitals across Minnesota received toys to help make a difficult time for both the children and their parents a little brighter. They are able to celebrate the holidays even though they are away from home.

How can you help? Engage your family, friends, flying groups, etc. to help collect toys. Work with your local FBO to have a collection site. One toy or a planeload of toys, all are appreciated by the children and their families. Tree of Hope is the only organization that supplies toys to children in the hospital. Monetary donations are also accepted. Donations can be made on our web site or be contacting one of the co-chairs listed below.

What do we need? Tree of Hope is looking for new, unwrapped toys for infants to children 18 yr. old. Anything that can be used while they are in the hospital – toys, books, craft kits – something to help occupy their time while in the hospital.

Collection Date: Saturday December 6, 2014

9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
