Amy Brown, a local Scentsy consultant, held a Scentsy Buddy Drive during the month of December to benefit Brooke’s Toy Closet. On Friday, Dec. 22, Ms. Brown visited The Giving House located on TidalHealth Peninsula Regional’s campus to deliver the toys just in time for the holidays.
Ms. Brown noted the importance of this drive, stating: “It has been my pleasure to organize the Scentsy Buddy Drive for Brooke’s Toy Closet at TidalHealth’s Salisbury and Seaford hospitals. Everyone who participated enjoyed the opportunity to give back to the little ones who may need some comfort during hard times.”
Brooke’s Toy Closet is a program at TidalHealth Peninsula Regional and TidalHealth Nanticoke that provides new toys to children in the Emergency Department and Pediatric Units that the children get to keep and take home upon discharge.
The program was named in honor of Brooke Mulford, a young girl who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of cancer, in 2009 at the tender age of 4 years old. After a valiant battle, she passed away in June 2017. Brooke had a vision to give toys to kids in the hospital to make their time there a little easier, and that vision is what sparked the creation of Brooke’s Toy Closet.
The TidalHealth Foundation thanks Ms. Brown for supporting Brooke’s Toy Closet and our pediatric patients. To learn more about this program and how you can donate, visit tidalhealth.org/toycloset or contact the TidalHealth Foundation at [email protected] or 410-543-7140.
