The Pleasure Island Parrot Heads are working in partnership with New Hanover Medical Center Foundation, to bring Christmas In July for the children in the Betty H. Cameron Women's & Children's Hospital, located at the New Hanover Medical Center in Wilmington.
The Parrot Heads will be purchasing toys, games, coloring books, crayons, markers, arts & craft supplies, X-Box 360 games, plush toys, rattles, and other items for newborns as well. We will also be purchasing play things needed for the playroom so that all the children hospitalized during the year can enjoy them.
We are seeking your help to make Christmas in July a success by by visiting these local businesses, and by depositing your pocket change in the donation jar at the counter: Island Hotz Hot Dogs, OCEAN Beach Store, Subway, Zaak Grill, Top Wok Restaurant, Island Colors, Papa Murphy’s Pizza, Kure Beach Diner, Primrose Cottage, Domino’s Pizza, Carolina Beach Convenience Store, WINGS Beach Stores, Charlie’s Boardwalk Subs, Southern Digital Art, Krazy Kones, Squigley's Ice Cream, Fuzzy Peach Frozen Yogurt Bar, Frank’s Pizza and Gulf Stream Restaurant. During the holiday season, many organizations bring joy to the children in hospitals by bringing them gifts. Children in these hospitals are forgotten the remainder of the year. We hope to bring some joy to the children in the hospital during the summer when these kids should be on vacation with their parents, and playing with their friends. For more information, please call Rich Walsh – (910) 707-0060.
