Toys collected for bereaved youth
Sutter North Home Health and Hospice, working with Yuba County, has collected and is distributing gifts to 42 youths in its children’s bereavement program before Christmas Day.
This year’s partnership in the gift effort began when Yuba County Administrator Robert Bendorf reached out to fellow United Way board members to find children to receive donations.
Yuba County hosts an annual holiday breakfast for department managers and asks them to bring a toy for a child in need.
The gifts will be distributed by Sutter North Home Health and Hospice staff and volunteers.
The children’s bereavement program provides grief counseling to children who have lost a loved one.
