Will You Help Make A Difference For Hospitalized Children This Holiday Season

By: Aaron B. Cohen | November 15, 2021

The holidays are a time for all to come together and remember what matters most. It’s an opportunity to spend time with family, reconnect with old friends and partake in the virtually all-encompassing holiday spirit, but it’s also a moment to consider those facing challenges, for whom the season may not seem to shine so brightly.

For families facing pediatric cancer, holiday traditions are relocated to hospitals, where children – despite their illness – still dream to experience the joy of the holiday season.

That’s why your Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers are teaming up with The Bottomless Toy Chest – a nonprofit organization dedicated to uplifting the spirits of locally hospitalized children. From now through December 15, bring a new toy to any participating Metro Detroit Chevy dealership, and it will be delivered straight to the kids who need a little extra holiday cheer.

All donations must be new. The wish-list below highlights the sort of items that will make the greatest impact:
