The Cattaraugus County Town Highway Superintendents Association donated a variety of toys, games and stuffed animals to Olean General Hospital’s emergency and pediatric departments this week.

For the third year, the group has collected toys and donated them to the hospital to give to sick children. Representing the highway association were Diane Metz, Brad Hurley, Tom Benz and Mike Fox. They noted that the program started 25 years ago when they gave their donations to social services and it just grew. “I get all excited. We just want to spread holiday joy as much as possible,” Metz said.

The hospital looks forward to being able to give sick children a little something to smile about when they come in and are grateful for the donations. “Improving a child’s emotional wellbeing is just as important as addressing their physical need. Being able to give a toy to a sick child brings a little joy to the child’s hospital visit, so the Cattaraugus County Highway Association’s support is very much appreciated,” said Katie Watkins, RN, nurse manager, OGH.
