Toy Drive in Honor of Son

A local family is paying it forward this holiday season with a toy drive for Sacred Heart Childrens Hospital in Spokane.

Sutton Charlie Neer was only on this earth for seven and a half months but his family is ensuring his legacy will live on well beyond that.

Sutton passed away in 2010 of multiple complications due to a congenital heart disease.

What the family thought would be a 10 day stay at Spokane Childrens Hospital turned into a six-week battle for Sutton's life.

 During their stay at the hospital the Neers noticed there weren't a ton of toys for the kids ot play with, but the ones that they did have were very important.

Now, as a way to give back to a place that gave so much to them the Neers are holding a new toy drive from now until December 15th. All the toys collected will be sent to Sacred Heart, and as a holiday treat some of the dontated toys will be put into  what they call the "Santa Store". A place where child patients can go shopping and pick out something for their siblings.
