Royal LePage Realtors Marnie Law and Michele Wuerch, with help from Christie Paisley and Marina Alford, delivered the toys to the Paediatric Unit in time for Christmas.
The Royal LePage offices in Parksville and Qualicum Beach celebrated their 4th annual “Toys for Hospitalized Tots” drive by delivering approximately 200 toys to the Paediatric Unit at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH). Co-organizer Michele Wuerch, put the call out to fellow Royal LePage Realtors in early December and the response was overwhelming. Dolls, board games, and educational toys were just some of the donations that will give children facing medical challenges a chance to be kids while visiting NRGH. When the group delivered the toys just before Christmas, Wuerch expressed her appreciation to every donor who supported the toy drive, “this is possible thanks to Realtors, but also because of other businesses, our generous clients, as well as many friends who recognized the need and stepped forward”. The toys will increase the NRGH Paediatric team’s ability to provide some respite for young people during a critical time.
