EDINBURG – The Edinburg Rotary Club donated dozens of toys to help children celebrating Christmas at the South Texas Health System Children’s Hospital in Edinburg.

“The Edinburg Rotary donated a truckload of toys to make sure that the kids who are in the hospital during the holidays have at least one toy to brighten their day,” said Rotarian Tim Smith. “It is imperative that we try to meet the needs of our children in the community.”

Rotarians purchased approximately $1,000 worth of toys and delivered them to the hospital’s staff on Dec. 18.

“These $1,000 worth of toys will go a long way for our children. It’s never easy being in the hospital, especially around this time of the year,” said Matthew Malinak, Chief Operating Officer at South Texas Health System Children’s Hospital. “Every one of these toys is just going to bring a smile to the kids and their families.” The Edinburg Rotary Club is comprised of 50 business and community members.
