Eisenhower Middle School is working to help conquer cancer with upcoming events.

treatment at Morristown Children’s Oncology Unit The school would like to invite the community to support the efforts of their students in assisting the families that are going through treatment at Morristown Children’s Oncology Unit by holding a toy drive over the next month for Goryeb Children’s Oncology Unit’s Treasure box.

The Treasure box is a place a child goes to after receiving spinal taps, radiation, chemotherapy, and/or blood work. This special place gives the child a place to forget about their difficult journey and focus on having fun with a simple toy.

If you are interested in participating in the community event, please drop off toys/check donations to Eisenhower Middle School located at 47 Eyland Avenue in Succasunna.

Check donations can be written out to Valerie Center Treasure Chest Fund and dropped off at EMS.

Goryeb Children’s Oncology Unit’s Treasure boxAny smaller toys under about $10 would be great with the exception of stuffed animals. Favorites include Slinkies, Silly Putty, Barbies, action figures (Batman, Spider-Man, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Minecraft, etc.), My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake, Shopkins, Mash’ems/Fash’ems, Twozies, Grossery Gang, Trashies, Little People, Hot Wheels, play tools, play food/kitchen items, bracelets, nail polish, bubbles, character balls (not tiny bouncy balls or big soccer balls), Imaginext, card games (Monopoly Deal, Uno, Life Adventures, Scrabble Slam, etc.), Legos, art kits, Play-Doh sets, etc.

Bigger kids prefer gift cards to the treasure chest. Gift cards should be in $10 increments to Starbucks, Amazon, Chipotle, Target, Dairy Queen, Dunkin Donuts, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, Modells, Five Below, Michael’s, AC Moore, etc.

Gift cards to local restaurants are also appreciated! Families can order out when the child is spending the entire day in the center or in the hospital overnight. Local restaurants to the hospital that deliver include Godfather, South Street Creamery, Pure Pita, Pomodoro’s, and more!

Kelly Blanchette from Morristown Memorial Hospital was kind enough to come to EMS to present to the students and staff on February 2nd and to kick off this community service event.

“Blanchette focused on all the wonderful things Goryeb Hospital does for the children in cancer treatment,” shared Heather Roddy, co-advisor of the EMS Character Education Committee.

The toy drive at EMS was developed by Isabella Reilly in Roddy’s seventh-grade Civics class.

“Isabella is a cancer survivor who has lead by example by donating her birthday gifts to the unit in the past as well as creating this special program. Isabella will give back the warmth and kindness to other children that she received herself as a young child.”

Reilly showed her strength and maturity in her presentation to her peers when she shared her story of surviving cancer as well as the motivation to bring this project to fruition. She spoke side-by-side with her mother who shared the parent’s perspective of dealing with the treatment of cancer with such a young child.

“Isabella’s parents were there to support her during her presentation,” explained Roddy.

Roddy went on to say, “EMS students are holding a dance to honor the unit. The PTO and Character Education Committee teamed up to bring the event to EMS. DJ Chris D’Amico will be donating his time the night of the event. This month the school will be working to make a positive impact towards the efforts of the Goryeb Center to create a positive light for children dealing with this challenging situation.”

For more information regarding these events and the EMS Character Education Committee, please contact Heather Roddy at hroddy@roxbury.org or Shannon Rodas (srodas@roxbury.org).
