The TMC Practice Council put out the call last month that our Andrea’s Closets were sparse. The extended TMC family — staff, doctors, visitors, friends rose to the call and now Child Life hardly knows where to put all the toys that are overflowing in both their offices and in the Business Office.
“The tremendous support that we received for our Andrea’s Closet toy drive was absolutely incredible,” said Jolene Eggert, manager, Child Life. “Our office is full of amazing toys to be put into our closets for our pediatric patients to b
able to choose from after an invasive procedure. We thank each and every one of you who participated in making this such a success.”
About Andrea’s Closet — When children face frightening medical treatments, Andrea’s Closet brings them comfort and distraction from their pain by allowing them to choose a special gift from a toy-filled closet. Andrea’s Closet was founded in 2002 by Kenny and Traci Brunk following the death of their daughter. The couple believes every sick child should have access to a closet full of new toys.
