Each year, Carson Tahoe Health director of resource management, Kayleen Fogleman, along with the CTH holiday and special events committee, invites area children to the CTH Kids Christmas Party. This year, Fogleman is bringing Christmas in the form of summer fun toys and sunblock to the Boys & Girls Clubs in Western Nevada in June.

Fogelman said a notification was sent to employees asking for their kindness in donating sunscreen and water toys for the kids. Employees are collecting items in three CTH locations through the month of June, and Fogelman invites public contributions as well. “Carson Tahoe Health’s mission is to promote health and well-being in the community, it’s what we stand for,” Fogelman said. “We asked ourselves why just contribute to the kids during the holidays? It’s appropriate for kids to have sunblock and water toys to have a healthy, fun summer.”

Fogelman and her team delivered the first batch of toys and sunblock on Monday to the Club, much to the delight of Club members.

“Carson Tahoe Health has been great for our kids,” Katie Leao, chief professional officer for the Club, said. “The kids look forward to the Christmas party each year, and now they’ll have a fun, safe way to beat the heat.”

Donations of new water toys and sunblock can be brought to any one of the cafeterias at the Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center, 1600 Medical Parkway; the Sierra Café at Carson Tahoe Sierra Surgery, 1400 Medical Parkway, and the Midtown Café at Carson Tahoe Specialty Medical Center, 775 Fleischmann Way in Carson City.
