The Happy Wheels cart makes its rounds each week at MUSC Children’s Hospital. Volunteers take the Happy Wheels cart, loaded with new toys to the hospital’s inpatient rooms, allowing each child to select his or her favorite item. The Happy Wheels cart offers a free gift to all children whose maladies include cancer, heart and lung diseases and numerous other child health related concerns. This year, LES is going to help fill the cart for Happy Wheels by sponsoring a toy drive in celebration of the Carolina vs. Clemson football game. Please consider participating and send a new toy, game, etc. We will be accepting donations November 3 – December 5.
The Happy Wheels cart cannot accept used toys or books.
Please don’t wrap them in any way.
Please remove all price tags.
