A task force of seven Bi-Cultural Day School students recently took ownership of restocking the shelves at David’s Treasure Tree Toy Closet, a community service of the Pediatric Unit at Stamford Hospital which offers new toys for any child admitted to the hospital. As part of Bi-Cultural’s Chesed Committee, 8th-grade students Shira Cohen, Rebecca Dayan, Sarah Hanna, Sara Gatz, Maya Jubas, Rina Marlowe and Ashley Shapiro spent more than a month soliciting donations and collecting more than 130 new toys to ensure that this special service remain full of treasures for all children in the hospital in need of a gift.
