• Local organizations support Brooke’s Toy Closet in April and May 2024

    SEAFORD & SALISBURY — The TidalHealth Foundation thanks Hallmark and the Lake Forest School District for supporting Brooke’s Toy Closet in April and May 2024.

    Brooke’s Toy Closet is a program at TidalHealth Peninsula Regional and TidalHealth Nanticoke that provides new toys to children in the Emergency Department and Pediatric Units that the children get to keep and take home upon discharge.

    The program was named in honor of Brooke Mulford, a young girl who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of cancer, in 2009 at the tender age of 4 years old. After a valiant battle, she passed away in June 2017. Brooke had a vision to give toys to kids in the hospital to make their time there a little easier, and that vision is what sparked the creation of Brooke's Toy Closet.
