#SpreadAri'sLight - Chanukah Toy Drive for Chai Lifeline

Help bring special light to a seriously ill child by being a part of Beth Israel’s Chanukah Toy Drive for Chai Lifeline! Donated toys – new toys only, please! - will be distributed to patients and their siblings throughout the year.The drive is dedicated to Arianna Dougan.  Ari, who was scheduled to visit Omaha as part of last month’s Project Dreamland weekend at Beth Israel, lost her eight-year battle against cancer on November 11.  Having donations made in her memory is a wonderful tribute to her continual zest for life.  

Toys for infants through teens are needed.  Don’t want to fight the crowds in the stores? Just click on the image for a suggested toy list.  Have toys shipped directly to Beth Israel, 12604 Pacific Street, Omaha NE  68154.  Toys accepted through Sunday, Dec 19.
