Toy Drive Raises Funds and Holiday Spirit

Keeping their annual tradition, David and Christine Indursky of Freehold opened their home again this year to host a successful toy drive for patients at K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital. The reception brought in an overwhelming amount of toys for children of all ages, along with a healthy dose of holiday spirit. Giving back was the priority and, in addition to toys, guests made monetary donations, purchasing specific hospital needs from a “Giving Tree” during the event. The Giving Tree portion of the event brought in close to $13,000, more than double the amount from the year before.

Soccer Club Kicks Up Support

For the second year in a row, generous coaches, parents and players from the Toms River Independent Club (TRIC) soccer organization made the holiday season just a little bit brighter for patients and families at K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital. The club collected art supplies, toys and DVDs to benefit our youngest patients.

Born at just 29 weeks gestation and weighing in at 1 pound 12 ½ ounces, Mary Catherine was called “Miracle Mary” by the nurses in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Four years later, Mary Catherine’s parents, Kelly and John, are the proud parents of two incredible children (a new baby boy born this year) and Mary Catherine is a healthy, happy child who loves to dance and play. The care she received at K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital was the reason that her grandparents, Eugene and Judy Mulvaney, made a gift to The Next Step campaign for the expansion of a second acute care in-patient floor.
