Harlan's Heroes- Operation Toy Drop Off

At the request of Harlan in December 2013, before Harlan's Heroes existed, we as a family, Harlan, Jonathan and I, dropped off toys on Christmas Eve to all the children that were inpatient at Harlan's hospital.  Harlan asked as we left the hospital that day, "we do this again next year?"  Not knowing that we wouldn't have Harlan with us the next year, I said, "absolutely!" 

In Harlan's sweet memory we honor his request and have made this now an annual tradition.

Custom-made gift packs (including but not limited to electronics, gift cards, toys, etc.) are created and distributed to inpatient oncology patients and their siblings at Levine Pediatric Hematology Oncology and St. Jude Affiliate Clinic at Novant Health Hemby Children's Hospital.

*If you are interested in donating specifically to Harlan's Heroes - Operation Toy Drop, please contact us at, with Operation Toy Drop in the subject line.*
