On Friday, December 18th, Oviedo Masonic Lodge #243 delivered 4 LARGE boxes of toys to the Florida Hospital for Children,Walt Disney World Pavillion.
This marks the 11th year that Oviedo Lodge has participated 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, who have been giving sizable donations for this cause.
As always, the hospital staff was very excited and appreciative of the donations . All were very hospitable giving us a tour showing where the contributions actually go for these kids in need. These contributions from our Brothers and local business partners truly helped the staff of the Child Life Program while ensuring that the children in their care will indeed have a very Merry Christmas. The toy contributions 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 contributed to this worthy cause !
