On December 19th, Oviedo Masonic Lodge delivered 5 LARGE boxes of toys to the Florida Hospital for Children.
This marks the 10th year of Oviedo Lodge’s participation in this worthy cause.
Tom Bryson, Past Master of Oviedo Lodge, started this annual event many years ago, and in 2005, the Lodge began participating, with toy and cash donations from its membership. In 2012, we began partnering with local businesses as well, and since then we've been receiving sizable donations from the Mitchell Wade Salon in Oviedo, who encourages customer participation by offering discounted salon products.
As always, the hospital staff was very excited and appreciative of the donations! The contributions from our Brothers and business partners help the staff of the Child Life Program to not only ensure that the children in their care can have a Merry Christmas, but they are also used throughout the year to reward children when going through tough procedures, and to keep the playrooms well stocked.
Thank you SO MUCH to all who donated to this worthy cause!
