The Armer Foundation – a local non-profit for families with children with extreme medical needs – is hosting its third annual holiday toy drive to benefit the Banner Cardon Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and Oncology Unit through Dec. 15.

About 19 local businesses throughout the Valley are participating as drop-off locations for the unopened toys, according to a press release, which will provide holiday spirit, smiles and hope to children battling for their lives.

“Having been in these families shoes ourselves, we know what a difference even just one toy can make in a child’s life when they spend day in and day out in the same hospital room,” said Jennifer Armer, Founder of the Armer Foundation, in a release.

“While we are often helping with families’ medical expenses, we always like to do something extra for the holidays and are overjoyed by the amount of local business who are helping us give back to these children and their families.”

Items the Armer Foundation will collect at its thrift store location, Armer Foundation for Kids, 9830 S 51st St., Ste. A128, Phoenix, AZ 85044, include:
