“It’s so wonderful for us to be able to provide these toys to our youngest patients to help alleviate their apprehensions and fears, comfort them during their stay and inspire their healing and recovery. The generosity of the Miles for Moe Foundation helps with this mission and makes a difference in the lives of many children and families in our community.” Said Tim LeBouthillier, CHH Director of Community Development.
