AGMC National Charities
LEGACY TOY DRIVE
The Legacy Toy Drive began in 2016. The Toys and other items are donated in the name of Cody Parrick to Shriners’ Hospital in Shreveport, LA had been a medical provider for Cody and so much more. Wanting to give back and contribute to an organization that had done so much for Cody and his family and others, in 2016 Cody's family began this event. In 2017, AGMC OK46B started to assist with this event and it has morphed into something even more amazing. The feeling and experience of going to the hospital is like no other. It gives a completion for some, a sense of giving back, and inspiration for all. The children, their families, and staff are always welcoming and grateful for our arrival. The fulfillment of being part of something so much bigger than just us has the AGMC, and all of those that have joined us, looking forward to this amazing experience every year. The AGMC is not only dedicated in helping the Shriner's Hospital but it has now started to help St Jude's Hospital as well.
