  • Greetings from the Central-Thon Committee!  We are excited to kick-off the 2019-2020 fundraising season with our annual toy drive.  These donations go directly to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, specifically, Child Life Services.  Last year, we collected 425 toys; this year our goal is 500 toys, but we hope to exceed that goal with cooperation from the outgoing and motivated student and faculty/staff community here at CHS.  We would appreciate your support during this event (11/13-12/13) in the form of new, non-gift wrapped toys that you believe are well-suited for patients ages 4-21. There are drop-boxes in front of the main entrance and Room 211.  Please reach out to either our sponsor, Dr. Elliott Drago, or one of our Co-Directors, Hannah Poeng (7038787@philasd.org), Alesha Philip (7147609@philasd.org), and April Serrano (6964137@philasd.org) if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.  Many thanks in advance for your support and may you all have a bountiful toy drive season!
