George School Toy Drive for Tomorrows Children's Fund at Hackensack Hospital

George School’s Toy Drive for Tomorrows Children’s Fund at Hackensack Hospital.

The Character Trait for the month of November is Citizenship. With some help for our 5th grade Peer Pals we would like to continue helping our community and those in need.

For the month of November we will be holding a Toy Drive for Tomorrows Children’s Fund at Hackensack Hospital. Our goal is to collect as many unopened/new gifts* and toys and even gift cards by November 21st. These gifts will be gifted to children and families at Hackensack Hospital during the holidays.

Please drop off all unopened/new gifts in the front lobby.

*Gifts are required to be unopened and new to eliminate any excess germs that could cause illnesses to patients.

About Tomorrows Children’s Fund:

Their Mission:

The Tomorrows Children’s Fund was founded by a group of committed parents to help their children and others like them with cancer and serious blood disorders. With the help of friends like you, today, TCF provides a warm, healthy and loving environment for children in treatment and a full scope of services to relieve families’ emotional and financial stress. In addition to our direct financial aid programs, TCF also offers an array of activities, events, outings, special guests and parties, designed to provide our young patients with a brighter tomorrow. All of which confirms our belief that through hope, hard work and heartfelt generosity, extraordinary things are possible.
