The HHP Club is hoping to collect enough toys for every child at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, where they will be dropping the toys off prior to Christmas.

Members of the HHP Club also will be on hand to collect donations to purchase more items for the estimated 200 children who will be in the hospital during the holidays.
