Six boxes of donated toys delivered to Abbotsford Regional Hospital

Items were collected by United Outreach Federation

United Outreach Federation has donated six large boxes of toys to the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF).

The federation recently collected the toys for use in the pediatrics unit at Abbotsford Regional Hospital as well for youth who take part in the Adolescent Day Treatment Program and Early Psychosis Intervention programs in the Fraser East area of Fraser Health.

“We cannot thank them enough for their support,” said Liz Harris, executive director of the FVHCF.

“This amazing group of young adults has been doing this for two years and plan to provide support for years to come.”
