Yavneh’s Toy Drive Benefits Hospitalized Children

A couple weeks back, Yavneh Academy sent over this photo of a woeful stuffed giraffe and oblivious-looking teddy bear, with a note that “these animals need some friends.”

Really, though, they do.

From school spokeswoman Deb Silverthorne:

Yavneh Academy’s 2012 Stuffed Animal Drive is underway and the students of Kids Korner hope to surpass the 103 stuffed loves they collected last year. Donations will be shared with the patients of  Medical City Children’s Hospital.

“People don’t realize that stuffed animals make a huge difference to a child,” said senior Rachel Rudberg.  “The soft hug of an animal, character, or any fun stuffed toy really means a lot.  It’s a huge gift that doesn’t have to cost much at all.”

Please donate new stuffed pals to the Kids Korner box in the Yavneh’s Main Office thru December 5.  Yavneh Academy is located at 12324 Merit Drive  Dallas 75251.  For more information, call 214.295.3500 or visit yavnehdallas.org
