Methodist Sugar Land Hospital, in collaboration with Sugar Land and Fort Bend Exchange Clubs and the Sugar Land Rotary, provided free flu shots to community members who participated in Santa’s Gift Exchange. Fort Bend residents graciously brought new, unwrapped toys or clothing items to Methodist Sugar Land Hospital in exchange for a flu shot. The toys and clothing will benefit local children in the Fort Bend area during this holiday season.

“We were very pleased to see such a large turn-out on Saturday morning. It is great to work and live in a community that can come together for a wonderful cause that will benefit the children in our community. We are also proud to once again partner with the local exchange and rotary clubs to provide this community offering and plan to do so again in 2013,” said Leena Taneja, Director of Physician Relations and Marketing at Methodist Sugar Land Hospital.
Organizers of Santa’s Gift Exchange 2012 are anticipating an increase of qualifying families due to economic downturns. Santa’s Gift Exchange will provide toys and clothing to more than 3,500 economically disadvantaged children in Fort Bend County.
“A special thank you to the 350 plus people who attended the free flu shot clinic and community toy drive event, as more children will now get the present they deserve,” said Kaelyn Bujnoch, Marketing Coordinator at Methodist Sugar Land Hospital. “The outpouring of support and toys from the community through this effort was truly awe inspiring. Through this joint effort, we are well on our way to collecting toys for the underprivileged Fort Bend children that but for Santa's Exchange would not be able to celebrate the holidays.”
The toy drive will continue until December 12th and Methodist Sugar Land Hospital will remain a site for donations. Please drop off new, unwrapped toys or clothing items to Methodist Sugar Land Hospital.
