Reilley Walden, an eighth grade student at John F Kennedy Middle School, is hosting her 5th Annual Toy drive for Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. The event, Stuff My Mom’s SUV for CCMC will be held Saturday Nov. 29 at 2223 Meriden-Waterbury Rd. in the Marion section of Southington.
The event is held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Walden started the event at age 7, she said in a press release, “because I was diagnosed with Juvenile Rhemotoid Idiopathic Arthritis and I wanted to help the kids that could not get out of the hospital. This event donates the toys to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center for the kids who can’t be home in time for Christmas.”
Only new, unwrapped and unopened toys will be accepted.
