The Triad Chapter of CUaware held a toy drive for Brenner Children's Hospital in Winston-Salem, which admits more than 4,500 children and sees more than 21,000 pediatric outpatients a year.
Toys were collected in November and December by credit unions in the Piedmont Triad region, and delivered to the hospital prior to Christmas.
CUaware's donations were distributed through the hospital's Child Life Department, which gives Christmas gift bags to patients during the holidays. Donations were also handed out at special holiday events or used at the patients' bedsides for activities that help children cope while receiving treatments at the hospital.
Among the toys collected were teddy bears, puzzles, and Play-Doh sets. The hope is they will help distract young patients from the pain and stress that can be experienced during a hospital stay.
CUaware is a council with the North Carolina Credit Union League.
