With Covid-19 restrictions, the little patients in the pediatric wing at Victoria General Hospital are not allowed to bring their favorite toys from home. The play areas remain closed as no toys can be shared. Partnering with Toys R Us we were able to gather 44 boxes of toys to donate!! The dream was to collect enough toys and funds to keep the toys in the children's wing full up to and including Christmas -which we will definitely be able to do!
For Mother's Day we teamed up with Brentwood Bay Village Empourium to bring you a special tea box containing 17 different sweet and savory items.
Each box is lovingly presented with decorative lined paper, ribbon and flowers/rosemary. All orders received a fresh carnation from Brown's The Florist!
