The time of the year has come for our THIRD Annual Toy Drive!

Unfortunately, due to the COVID restrictions this year, the hospital is not accepting in person donations – all toys must be received directly from an online store through the mail.  It is sad that we will not be able to see the bins in the office overflowing with toys, but I assure you that we will do our best to purchase the most toys that we can with the money we collect! Any monetary donations can be sent directly to The Riverdale Funeral Home. If you would prefer to order toys online from the hospital’s wish list the link can be found below:


This has been a hard year for all of us, but especially for the children that have been in the hospital. Thank you all so much in advance!  You have helped make the past couple years such a success and that means more than you will ever know!
