Toy binge benefits young patients

Community School third-grader Anika Vandenburgh, 9, puts a tag on a stuffed animal Wednesday morning at The Toy Store in Ketchum. Third-graders from the private school picked out and purchased toys to be donated to child patients at St Luke’s Wood River hospital. The shopping spree was part of the Comforting Young Patients project, made possible through collaboration between the Community School, the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation and Wow-Students, a group that encourages students to give to local nonprofit organizations. Event organizer Kristin McMahon said “it is humbling to see these kids’ enthusiasm for giving and the delight they take in selecting the perfect toy.” Photo by Roland Lane
