Mark Greenberg '23 leads Toy Drive for Dell Children's Hospital Patients
Leading up to the holidays, sophomore Mark Greenberg started thinking about children who would be spending the holidays in the hospital and wanted to find a way he could make things, even a little bit, better for them.
He decided to organize a toy drive with the hope of providing a gift for kids at Dell Children's Hospital to open on Christmas. He asked for donations from his classmates, teachers and anyone in the community that was able. Just before Christmas Mark and his parents (pictured) were to make their delivery to Dell Children's Hospital, bringing some joy to so many! St. Andrew's received the following letter from Dell Children's Hospital:
Dear all at St. Andrew's Upper School,
