Toys Given To Children in UH

For the second year in a row, the staff and faculty of the Institute of Ophthalmology and Visual Science (IOVS) have come together to collect and distribute toys to children hospitalized at University Hospital for the holidays. Last month, the faculty and staff received special requests for mobiles for cribs and were able to collect a few. As the need for new, non-battery operated mobiles is great and continuous, IOVS plan to continue to collect mobiles throughout the year.
