Monongahela Valley Hospital’s (MVH) ‘Toys for Tots’ drive received an added boost once again this year as members of the Monessen/Rostraver Rotary and Spring Grove Condo Clubhouse Committee donated dozens of dolls, trucks, cars, games, puzzles, stuffed animals and electronic devices to MVH’s annual toy drive.

Pictured (l. to r.) Monessen/Rostraver Rotary members Gerald Stasicha and Corinne Laboon donated dozens of toys on behalf of the Rotary and the Spring Grove Condo Clubhouse Committee to MVH Toys for Tots campaign managers Doug Prentice and John Bogdan.

“The Spring Grove Condo Clubhouse Committee held its annual holiday event and asked every attendee to donate a new toy,” explained Gerald Stasicha, immediate past president of the Monessen/Rostraver Rotary and a Spring Grove resident. “This is the third consecutive year that we have donated the toys to Monongahela Valley Hospital’s Toys for Tots Campaign. Some of my fellow Rotarians also purchased toys to donate to the hospital’s campaign.”

On Dec. 11, when Mr. Stasicha arrived at the hospital with the trunk of his car packed with toys, MVH’s Vice President of Marketing and Community Relations Corinne Laboon, who is a member of the Monessen/Rostraver Rotary, and John Bogdan, Behavioral Health nurse manager, and Doug Prentice, storeroom manger, helped him unload the toys and pack them in Toys for Tots boxes. Mr. Bogdan and Mr. Prentice have championed the Hospital’s Toys for Tots drive for nearly 25 years.

“Our staff and volunteers open their hearts to support MVH’s Toys for Tots campaign,” Mr. Bogdan explained. “We appreciate every toy that is donated and thank the Spring Grove Condo Clubhouse Committee and Monessen/Rostraver Rotary for their generosity. Our goal is to help ensure that the Mon Valley Leathernecks, a group of former Marines who do the legwork for the local Toys for Tots program, have enough toys for every child in the Mon Valley who reaches out for a toy.”
