Tuscaloosa not-for-profit Angel's Hope will be collecting items to make Valentine's Day bags for kids on the Hematology/Oncology floor at Children's Hospital in Birmingham.

Angel’s Hope is a not-for-profit started by friends and family of Tuscaloosa teen Angel Eaton, who unfortunately lost her battle with cancer at just 18-years-old. Throughout her fight, Angel never lost her will to live, and she never lost her desire to help other children and families who were fighting their own battle. Using the name "Angel's Little Rays of Sunshine," she collected various items to donate to the hematology/oncology floor (otherwise known as 8QB) at Children's Hospital in Birmingham. She donated food for the food pantry, toiletry bags for parents and gift cards and toys for the kids.

Angel's Hope will be at University Mall collecting an assortment of items for boys and girls of all ages on Saturday from 10 am-2 pm. Donations must be new; NO violent-themed toys, latex, yoyo's, paddle balls, pretend guns or food/candy.

Please see below for needed donation. In addition, we'd like to include a Valentine's Day fleece blanket with each bag (we need at least 24). We also need large Valentine's Day bags and Valentine's Day wrapping paper.
