Reader's Photo: Toys For Good Sam Hospital

Thanks to Los Gatos Patch reader Jacqueline Robb for letting us know about her act of charity this past Christmas season during which she donated toys for young hospital patients.

Los Gatos Patch reader Jacqueline Robb donated 149 toys to Good Samaritan Hospital during the past Christmas season, directly benefitting young patients receiving treatment there.

The toys included stuffed animals, dolls and little racing cars. Robb collected them from local businesses and individuals such as the Silicon Valley San Jose Business Journal, Integra Insurance and Starbucks of Campbell and of Los Gatos. 

The Auxiliary of Good Samaritan Hospital, a nonprofit organization made up of volunteers who provide service to patients and visitors, called Robb "a very gracious lady," due to her act of kindness.

Leslie Kelsay, Good Samaritan Hospital spokeswoman, expressed appreciation for Robb's toy drive.

Donations are given to the surgery, emergency, and pediatric units for the children. Anyone who wants to donate pillow pals or any small soft stuffed animal can write the donations off. Gifts must be new preferably with the tags on the items. People who would like to donate to my drive next year around Christmas time may reach me at jacrobb@hotmail.com. It would be wonderful to hear from you :) The Auxiliary of Good Samaritan Hospital's non-profit taxID is 94-6099-635. Thank you- Jacqueline Robb
