For the eighth year in a row, the St. Peter’s Hospital Pharmacy Department held a toy drive to benefit the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program, celebrating its 75th year in 2022. The pharmacy placed collection boxes in the department and other locations at St. Peter’s Hospital, and St. Peter’s Health Partners colleagues and visitors filled four boxes in total with new, unwrapped toys.
Representing the Marine Corps League were Paul and Shorty, who were aided in loading the toys into the Toys for Tots van by St. Peter’s Health Partners pharmacy resident Sanu Pillai. Local Marine Corps League members, along with social welfare agencies, church groups, and other local community agencies, will distribute the toys to less fortunate children in the community.
St. Peter’s offers its many thanks to the pharmacy department, with a special thank you to Lynn Hamil for coordinating the program, and to all SPHP colleagues for their incredible generosity. Happy holidays to all!
