Coeur d’Alene Police deliver large toy donation to Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital

SPOKANE, Wash. — Officers with the Coeur d’Alene Police Department are making spirits bright at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital.

Police delivered a large toy donation to the hospital Monday afternoon.

The annual tradition, now on its fifth year, was started by Police Sgt. Shane Avriett, whose son Caiden spent the first six and a half months of his life at the Spokane hospital.

The children’s hospital relies on donations to give out toys on Christmas, to keep the Christmas Store stocked and to give out toys throughout the year for different occasions.
