Orthodontist participating in PCH toy drive

Join orthodontist Joe Pearson and his staff in participating in Phoenix Children's Hospital toy drive for those children who, with their families, can't be home to celebrate the holiday season.

Toys must be new and in the original package, and the following items will not be accepted: toy guns and war toys; latex balloons (due to allergies and choking hazards); candy, gum and food (due to allergies). Five or $10 gift cards to retail stores will also be appreciated.

Gifts may be dropped off through Dec. 23 at Dr. Pearson's office at 4350 E. Ray Road, Suite 112, which will then be hand-delivered to the hospital for distribution.

For more information, call (480) 759-7575.
