PORT ST. LUCIE -- The city of Port St. Lucie and its employees are hosting a Summer Sunshine Toy Drive to benefit seriously ill children.

The children are being treated at PATCHES, which is a pediatric nursing center serving the community. PATCHES provides daytime medical care for children with extreme medical conditions.

Sadly, there is a new group of children at PATCHES who need toys. Some were not there last Christmas; some will not be there this Christmas. Toys wear out and toys break, so there is a year-round need.

The city has a list of children designated by age and gender. This way, each child will be matched with the proper toy.

Please drop off the gifts by Aug. 9 at City Hall, the police station, the Port St. Lucie Civic Center or the Port St. Lucie Community Center. For health reasons, stuffed animals or puzzles with small pieces cannot be accepted.

Please make sure all gifts are unwrapped with the Sunshine tag attached to the gift so it is given to the correct recipient.

Those who can provide a toy are asked to stop by City Hall and choose the child they want to help, or call for details at (772) 871-5159.
