Santa Silvia is back with toys for Mary Bridge

TOYS FOR KIDS + FREE APPS = HOLIDAY SPIRIT >>>"For the past twelve years, I have collected toys that are later delivered to the many sick kids at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital on Christmas Day," says Silvia Cordova-Tapia. "It warms my heart to know that these kids will realize they are loved and that life is precious. I feel honored to have the opportunity to serve these kids each year."Yes, for 12 years Santa Silvia, as she is known throughout the halls of Mary Bridge, has collected toys for the kids. Friday, Dec. 7 at the Varsity Grill in downtown Tacoma, Santa Silvia taps into the holiday spirit again. From noon to 7 p.m. Santa Silvia and her elves will begin collecting donated toys, supporting children in our community who often can't be at home for Christmas."On Christmas Eve, two other people and I - and I'm hoping I can get a Santa Claus, too - will be delivering the toys to the ER at Mary Bridge. That's the good part," she says. more
