I actually called Childrens Hospital in Birmingham and asked to volunteer during the holidays and was told about the Sugar Plum Shop and how it would benefit the kids and parents that were there through the holidays
The Sugar Plum Shop is basically a toy store built inside the hospital from the donations received to the hospital. It allows the parents of any child that is sick or in the hospital during the holidays to shop for them without leaving the hospital and for any siblings they may have also so they can remain close to each other during Christmas and they also do the same throughout the year if they are in the hospital during their birthday
The City of Troy and surrounding areas have really came together over the years to make this a success and have jumped on board without hesitation. I work with a great group of guys and am honored to be a part of something to bring so many smiles to the faces of kids that are unfortunate to be at home during the holidays.
