Wyotech Motorcycle Students Donate Toys to Hospital
It was a picture-perfect Wednesday afternoon on Dec. 21 when the Wyotech motorcycle mechanics came rumbling in on their bikes, toys in tow, to visit Washington Hospital.
Fremont Wyotech instructors and students parked their motorcycles in front of Washington West and delivered hundreds of new stuffed animals, coloring books and toys that had been collected during their holiday toy drive.
Nurses and hospital employees gathered to welcome the motorcyclists.
"We are truly grateful to Wyotech for choosing to stop by and provide us with this very generous donation," said Angus Cochran, Executive Director of the Washington Hospital Foundation. "It is always nice to be able to provide a little something special to a child or family in our pediatrics unit or emergency room during the holidays."
This was the third annual collection effort according to Carl Blevins, administrator of the WyoTech Motorcycle Technology program, who added, "We hope to do it even bigger next year."
Washington Hospital sincerely appreciates the community's support during this special time of year.
