UHealth Jackson Children’s Care includes emergency rooms dedicated to children, walk-in urgent care centers, pediatric practices around Miami-Dade County, and Holtz Children’s Hospital, one of the largest children’s hospitals in the southeast U.S. This holiday season, Jackson Health Foundation continues the tradition of bringing joy to pediatric patients through their annual Holiday of Miracles Toy Drive event graciously sponsored by Ocean Bank and Amazon. The Foundation hopes to rally their supporters, staff, and the entire community to make this year’s toy drive the best yet. Donation boxes will be set up at Ocean Bank branches throughout Miami-Dade County where new, unwrapped gifts for children of all ages can be dropped off. Santa’s elves will then wrap the gifts to give out to patients during the holiday season. “We offer pediatric patients and their families a sense of normalcy and the chance to experience the holiday season’s miraculous moments,” said Flavia Llizo, Co-President & Chief Development Officer at the Foundation. “It is the compassion of our donors and volunteers that makes this possible.” To support the Holiday of Miracles Toy Drive, or find a list of additional toy drop-off locations, visit
