Senator Fuschillo �Extends the Holidays� for Pediatric Patients at Winthrop

On January 5, the pediatric waiting room in Winthrop-University Hospital�s Hagedorn Pediatric Inpatient Center looked more like a toy store than a sitting area thanks to Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr.�s annual �Extend the Holidays� toy drive, which provides a full year�s supply of toys and games for the Child Life Program at Winthrop.

Broder, Vice President for External Affairs & Development at Winthrop; Michael Adams, President, Nassau County Sheriff Officers Association; Nicole Almeida, MS, CCLS, Director of Winthrop�s Child Life Program; and Warren Rosenfeld, MD, Chairman of the Department of Pediatrics at Winthrop, to thank all of the local schools, unions and residents who participated in the Senator�s annual �Extend the Holidays� toy drive. Schools, unions and local residents collected over 1,000 toys for pediatric patients at Winthrop-University Hospital as part of Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr.�s annual �Extend the Holidays� toy drive.

More than 1,000 toys were collected through generous donations from local elementary schools, labor unions and community organizations. Senator Fuschillo hand-delivers the toys to patients after the holiday season so they can continue to experience the joy of receiving gifts throughout the new year.

�As a child, receiving the gift of a new toy is one of the best feelings during the holiday season. We want to make sure that children in the hospital, who are going through tough times, can experience this type of holiday cheer throughout the year,� said Senator Fuschillo.
