Carrington & Friends is an organization launched by 4th Grader Carrington Craig to provide toys to hospitalized children who will not make it home to spend Christmas with their families.

Carrington and Friends is the brain child of 9 year-old 4th grader Carrington Craig. At the age of 4, Carrington while visiting a sick Aunt in the hospital during the Christmas season witnessed a child being brought in to the emergency room and inquired, "will Santa visit these children in the hospital for Christmas?" When the response came that Santa possibly would not come because the parents were more concerned with the children being healthy and that would be the greatest gift to that family, Carrington was not satisfied with that.

     Carrington's solution was to ask all friends and family who were gathering to celebrate the holiday season at her home, to bring one toy per family for donations to children in the local hospital who would not be home for Christmas. Carrington delivered the toys on Christmas Eve and the rest is herstory. Her goal is to provide at least 20,000 toys to children each holiday season nationwide...she is well on her way. In December of 2015 and December of 2016, Carrington was featured on Fox 59 News - Indianapolis, IN for her toy drive efforts. The event was sponsored by Jason's Deli - Carmel, IN and Dunkin Donuts - Carmel, IN. Carrington's hope is that others will join and support this initiaive.

     2017 promises to be an amazing year as Carrington and Friends celebrates year number " 5"!! With the support of friends, family and local vendors that include McNamara Florist, Classic Cakes, The Wellington Banquet Facilities, Massage Heights and New Haven Missionary Baptist Church, Carrington and Friends will bring joy and cheer to hospitalized children.

     In 2016 your donations of $805 benefited this drive of which we are thankful and pray you are touched again this year to support this effort.
