Students collect Easter toys, donate to Driscoll patients

McALLEN – The Auxiliary to Driscoll Children’s Hospital at Driscoll Children’s Medical Plaza – McAllen recently received a generous donation of 625 plush toys from Central Christian School to give to patients throughout the Easter holiday. The project was a collective effort of the students, administration and staff members at the school. Under the direction of teacher Tina Coddington, students donated money to a fund drive to help buy stuffed bunnies for Easter. Joining in their efforts were members of Baptist Temple Church in McAllen, who donated many handmade and beautifully crafted puppies, and Robert R. Elizalde, State Farm Insurance agent from Edinburg, who donated over 200 cuddly bears.
