A Newtown girl has been inducted into a philanthropic organization for children and young adults.
Sophia Lasaro has donated an assortment of brand new toys and books received at her birthday party to Danbury Hospital. She is now part of the Danbury Hospital’s Kids Care Club. Lasaro said she hoped this donation brightens the day of patients and making their experience at the Hospital less frightening.
The Kids Care Club brings in donations to support pediatric programs and services at Danbury Hospital and New Milford Hospital.
Donations help purchase toys, movies, video games and other items to make children’s hospital stays more comfortable. Hospital officials say children have organized penny drives, operated lemonade stands and donated a portion of their allowance to contribute to the club.
