At a time of political partisanship, two local Senators came together for the community. Senator John Hoffman and Senator Jim Abeler made the season bright for children who are in the hospital over the holiday at their 11th annual Tiny Tots Toy Drive. Toys collected were delivered by the Coon Rapids Fire Department to the pediatric wing of Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids as well as Prairie Care in Brooklyn Park.
Senator Hoffman and Abeler wanted to make sure the toys will be in the hands of children in time for Christmas. Most importantly, all toys stay in our community!
“What started as a small gathering by my wife Yvette has grown into a community partnership serving hundreds of children. Through that partnership which included Primrose School of Champlin Park, Buona Sera Restaurant, Coon Rapids North Star Lions, the Coon Rapids Fire Department and community members we delivered toys to Mercy Hospital and were told that the need is year long,” Senator Hoffman said. “Your generosity has been amazing over the years and we thank you so much for bringing smiles to children in our community.”
“It is amazing the generosity of people, even in these challenging times. May God bless us every one,” said Senator Jim Abeler.
