Our favorite young philanthropist is at it again this year! Caleb—the remarkable young man who started the non-profit organization Caleb Cares 4 Kids to provide toys for patients at Nationwide Children’s Hospital—has launched his annual holiday toy donation drive and Dorosti Family Dental is proud to be a “drop off” location for new toy donations. But we need your help!
Bring your (new) toy donation to Dorosti Family Dental (2695 Maysville Pike in Zanesville, OH) anytime before Wednesday, December 13. A list of suggested toys is below. Please note that toys for older children are especially needed.
As a toddler, Caleb was a patient at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and has fond memories of getting to choose something from the Toy Cart. He started giving back when he was 9 years old, and created CC4K when he was just 11 years old, to continue to bring joy to other kids staying at the hospital.
Monetary donations also will be accepted to go toward the purchase of additional toys for Nationwide patients.
