WHAT: Pennsylvania State Treasurer Rob McCord will donate approximately 1,300 stuffed animal toys to patients at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
McCord will offer remarks and pass out stuffed animals to patients and families.
The toys were among items the Treasury held under its Unclaimed Property Program, which as a revenue-generating, good government program, often sells abandoned items. In this case, McCord decided that children should be the ones to benefit.
