Hospital Heros seeking help for Christmas donations


Christmas is a warm holiday spent with family, laughing, having fun and enjoying each other’s company. Unfortunately, thousands of kids a year spend Christmas Eve and Christmas day in the hospital.

However, seniors Aleya Shedd, Camryn Snowden, Troy Hernandez and Eleyna Ogg recently created a project to help out these children.

The four teamed up together to create Super Santa’s Hospital Heroes, an attempt to bring out the spirit of Christmas to the children spending it away from most family and friends.

“They don’t get the whole Christmas morning experience,” senior Aleya Shedd said.

They began this project for children who may not be able to celebrate the holiday for many different reasons.

So far, they have collected 25 donations. The goal is to reach up to 100 or 150 donations.

“[We feel like we are] saving people for free like super heroes” said Camryn Snowden.

Any donations are accepted. However, suggested donations include baby dolls, strollers, Barbie dolls, Play-Doh, puzzles, fingernail polish, Legos, new stuffed animals, baby bottles, balls, crayons, coloring books, headbands, and journals. Donations will be taken up until December 17 in rooms P119 or H206.

“If everything goes as planned, we can get a lot of donations for these kids. We can try to get at least 3-4 toys for the kids,” Hernandez said.

This will be the first year of this project and it has been very successful by far. The group will hopefully go to the hospital on December 19th and give the kids a moment to remember.
