SCHOOL a SPOI;.TS Norwalk Warriors I Official Publication for the Norwalk Community School District I Page Eight N/Warren Town and County News Thursday, january 7, 2010 Norwalk Basketball Norwalk's varsity boys and girls basketball teams and coaches were given a great opportunity before the holiday break. They took toys to children at Blank Children's Hospital in Des Moines. City State Bank has been a great partner in this and it is the sixth year that the boys have participated in this activity according to Head Coach Chris Larson. Donations were taken at several basketball games prior to the event. A total of $800 was collected from the generosity of fans. The players met at school on the 23 rd and went with list in hand to Toys R Us. Each player shopped for items and then went to Blank for the delivery. The hospital supplied the list of toys that are appropriate for use in the hospital. The toys were given to some children that are required to stay over Christmas to help them overcome the sadness of not being home for the holiday. Others are used throughout the year in the children's ward to occupy young minds so they don't dwell on their illnesses. A Child Life spokesper- son talked to the players and mentioned that they do not receive any funds from the hospital for toys so they rely on the gener- osity of donations. The teams are already plan- ning next year's event. If you would like to help, you can donate at the door next year or send your do- nations to Norwalk High School in care of Chris Larson, Blank Hospital fund. Teams Play Santa Photos submitted.
