Regan’s Ornament Drive 2020 – A Huge Success!
Thank you so much for your support during Regan’s Ornament Drive 2020. It looked dismal at first; due to the COVID pandemic, donations were way down. But then, with the help of a social media post and an Amazon Wish List, donations started pouring in. The record was 36 separate boxes delivered in one day! We felt bad for Mark, our amazing USPS letter carrier!
Thanks to your generosity, we ended up with more than 1,000 ornaments. They are being given to babies born at St. Joseph’s Health Hospital in Syracuse, NY, Albany Medical Center in Albany, NY, and Fairview Hospital in Great Barrington, MA. Hundreds more are being handed out to children who are patients at Golisano Children’s Hospital in Syracuse, NY, the Upstate Cancer Center and Joslin Diabetes Center in Syracuse. Still more are going to residents at the Nottingham Assisted and Independent Living, Vera House, McKinley Brighton Elementary School, and Tillie’s Touch.
