Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southlake Joins With U.S. Marine Corps Reserves Toys for Tots to Spread Holiday Cheer

DALLAS, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Proving true the old adage that "The sum is greater than the parts," Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southlake (THHMHS) is partnering with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves Toys for Tots program to make the holiday season a little brighter for many area families. The organizations are combining their efforts to collect unwrapped toys and canned goods and other non-perishable food items, culminating in a final event on Tuesday, December 8th where area residents can come by and meet some of the Toys for Tots Marines, Santa Claus, and join in other festivities.

"The holiday season always focuses us on the needs of others, and that is especially true during the difficult economic environment we are going through right now," said Traci Bernard, president of THHMHS. "We are honored to be working with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves Toys for Tots to make a bigger impact on our community by collecting more items together than each of us could on our own. We invite everybody who is able to join our effort and help inspire an extra bit of hope for someone less fortunate this holiday season."

THHMHS' internal holiday giving drive began Monday, November 23rd, when employees, patients and family members began dropping off unwrapped toys and canned food items and other non-perishables in the hospital's lobby.

On Tuesday, December 8th from 12:00 Noon to 2:00 PM, Toys for Tots Marines will be onsite at THHMHS to collect items and greet children and other donors. Santa Claus will also be there to gather last minute wishes.

In addition to the unwrapped toys, acceptable food items include:

Canned Goods - tuna, soups, stews, fruit, chili, ham, peanut butter and jellies, coffee and tea, evaporated milk, vegetables.

Packaged Foods - energy bars, pudding cups, fruit rolls, crackers, granola bars, mac & cheese, Hamburger/Tuna Helper, pasta, bread mixes.
