The Creekside Girls Basketball will be hosting “Ellie’s Knight” on December 5th for their game vs. Nease High School in honor of the Hanson Family. Ms. Hanson, who teaches at Creekside, recently lost her daughter to Congenital Heart Disease. Mrs. Hanson is currently promoting a toy drive to benefit the UF Children’s Hospital Pediatric Cardiac ICU where her daughter spent many of her first days. The PCICU at UF Shands Children’s Hospital cares for patients born with Congenital Heart Disease. Many patients are awaiting a heart transplant, are on heart assistive devices, or are needing some form of critical care from an ICU team due to their condition. The ages of patients range from infant to teen and many stay long-term. The 23 room facility is always full and is expected to be full during the holidays. This is why the toy drive is so important. We want to help make the holidays just a little better for these kids and their families that are there.
For every person who brings an unwrapped toy to the game, they will get a ticket to be entered into a drawing for a prize basket at half-time.
Please see the attached “wish-list” items to be donated.
