Children’s Hospital Toy Drive in honor of Ben Banks
HMS is hosting a Toy Drive for Children’s Hospital in honor of Ben Banks. If you would like to participate, we are collecting the toys from Wednesday, December 13th – Friday, December 15th. In Ben’s honor, we are trying to Stuff The Bus to take to Children’s Hospital. Due to health and safety reasons, Children’s Hospital does have requirements for their toys; they are below.

=         All donated items must be NEW (store-bought and in original packaging) and SAFE (non-toxic)
=         We CANNOT accept used or "previously loved" items
=         We CANNOT accept items that have been stored for an extended period of time, are no longer clean/fresh, or have a strong odor (perfume, cigarette, etc.)
=         Homemade items must meet strict approval guidelines—please contact the Child Life Department at 412-692-9691 prior to making the items to ensure the donation supports the guidelines. We are no longer able to accept knitted or crocheted hats.
=         PLEASE DO NOT GIFT WRAP the donation.

Children’s Hospital does have a Wish List of toys to give you ideas and you can also buy an item right from the website and send it directly to Children’s if you would prefer! Go to the following website to check it out - CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL . You can choose to buy that item directly from Walmart from the Children’s Hospital link, and if you choose to ship it to Children’s Hospital the address is:

Managing Grief and Loss

It is very challenging for us all to face the passing of a young person. Any reaction to the death of a peer is normal and your child’s reaction may range from withdrawal to crying or anger. Your child may also ask questions about loss. We have provided resources below that may be helpful for you as you discuss grief.  Please also consider monitoring and discussing your child’s communication (social media, phone, email, text messaging) to help assess their needs. If you feel your child needs support, please contact his or her school’s Guidance Counselor. The Caring Place is also a valuable resource for grief and loss. Their website is:

Handout 1: Addressing Grief

Handout 2: Helping Children Cope

Handout 3: List of Books for Elementary Age Children on Grief
