Hilltop Times March 16,2006 Gifts bring smiles to little patients BYG.A.VOLB Ogden Air Logistics Center Public Affairs There she sat, dwarfed by a mountain of stuffed animals, trying to decide which she'd take home -- each time she found the right one, another was just a little better. "She (10-year-old Madison) was a patient in our rapid treatment unit chosen to officially accept the donation from Hill," said Lyn Dye, event coordinator at the Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City. "And she was so over- whelmed with the choices that it took her quite a while to finally choose just one." Madison's quandary was the result of a stuffed animal round-up sponsored by the 84th Space and C3I Sustainment Group, the results of which was deliv-, ered to the hospital in late February. Following several minutes of inner debate, Madison decided on a small black and brown dog, leaving the rest to other patients. "There were more than 300 toys and stuffed animals collected during the round-up," according to Debbie Erickson,deputy director at the 84th. "We distributed them to four organizations: the 75th Security Forces Squadron; Davis County Children's Justice Center; the Christmas Box House; and Primary Children's Medical Center."

The children's hospital, which provides everything from dental care to heart transplants, has, on average, 173 patients daily. The visit by. members of Hill was as uplifting for hospital staff as it was for their young patients. "The children who received the gifts weren't the only ones to benefit," said Amber Nielsen, hospital communications representative. "The staff loves seeing smiles on the faces of patients. Such generous acts of kindness really give the hospital staff a boost and helps make their jobs enjoyable. There's just something special about seeing a cart full of toys and stuffed animals being wheeled through the halls of the hospital." Ms. Nielsen said it was extra special since they "receive the most critically ill and injured children in the area. It was just nice to see smiles on their faces." She added, "We were all humbled by the experience. The children are going through so much stress and are being so brave during their illnesses. We all wanted to do more."
