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.
