Boot Barn donates toys for children!

This holiday season, the Boot Barn in Gillette, Wyoming wanted to brighten the health care experience for children by donating more than 60 plush horses to Campbell County Health.

Boot Barn donates toys for childrenThese and other new stuffed animals are given to children who are in the Emergency Department. The nurses and doctors really like having something to give the kids when they are scared and not feeling well.

“We are grateful for this and all donations. The kids really soften when you give them a stuffed animal, which helps us be able to treat the more effectively,” says Nurse Supervisor Cathy Heiman.

Thank you to the Boot Barn for their wonderful donation!

Due to infection prevention standards, CCH can only accept brand new items—we may not accept gently used plush toys, clothing or blankets; used books are taken on a case-by-case basis. Items must also come from a smoke free establishment. If you wish to donate items to Campbell County Health, please contact Community Relations at 307-688-1580.
