Little St. Nick

Every year the Viner family has a tradition of buying gifts and donating them to their local toy drive for underprivileged children. They go to the store and have their kids pick out gifts they want for themselves and those are the ones they give. For them, it's not only about their children learning about charity but them actually living it. It’s one thing to put toys in a bin, but it's something totally different to give selflessly something that was really wanted for someone else. 


The Viner family started a new tradition through the Nicholas Viner Heart Foundation's "Little St. Nick" program. They will be bringing gifts in person to the children's hospital on St. Nicholas Day! The Viners understand how challenging it can be to stay in the hospital for an extended period of time, having done it with Nicholas.  That's what inspired the idea of Little St. Nick. Being in the hospital with a sick child is difficult enough but probably even more so for children and families who have to spend the holidays away from home. 


Thank you for joining us in this season of giving! Together we are helping to bring a little cheer to a child and family who really need it!  Our first annual toy drive (2015) was a huge success and we hope for continued success but can't do it without your support!
