Local student donates toys to the Pediatric Care Center

December 04, 2008

In the spirit of the holiday season, Ali Shuster of Margate, a junior at Atlantic City High School, donated a variety of toys, clothing and accessories to Shore Memorial Hospital’s Pediatric Care Center on December 1. Shuster originally started collecting toys from local businesses as a bat mitzvah project five years ago and has continued donating items to the hospital ever since. “It makes me feel good to help other people,” she says.
