FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Children's Healthcare at Forsyth, located in the Collection shopping center, has received a donation of infant and children's toys as well as iTunes gift cards for teens.

These gifts were presented to Beth Buursema, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta's community outreach manager for Forsyth County.

"We always like to have a Christmas gift for the children that have to come to the urgent care center on Christmas Eve or on Christmas Day," Buursema said. "No one likes being in the hospital on Christmas, but they would only be here if they are really sick, and a small Christmas gift from us makes them smile."

Polo Women's Club made the donations possible through their live holiday wreath and garland sale, using the proceeds to purchase the items specifically for those who will be coming into the Forsyth CHOA urgent care during Christmas.

For more information, or to join the women's club at their Jan. 10 luncheon, email polowomensclub@gmail.com.
