Fox 4: Liberty 7-year-old raises 3,000 toys and coloring books for Children’s Mercy

By Rebecca Gannon

Earlier this week, FOX4 told you about Kamryn, a 7-year-old in Liberty who wanted to bring 1,000 coloring books to the young patients at Children's Mercy Hospital.

She not only reached her goal, she exceeded it.

With the help of 125 different car owners and a myriad of other people in the metro, Kamryn donated 1,300 coloring books to Children's Mercy on Saturday, Sept. 7.

Most toy drives and donations to Children's Mercy happen in December. A coordinator with CMH's Volunteer Services told FOX4 she averages about 650 donation drop offs in December, but only about 100 a month from January to October.

The coordinator with CMH said the toys are also given to children before their operations as encouragement for the procedure and entertainment while they recover .
