The Calvin Preston Foundation was born from a simple thought back in 2013 while Calvin was receiving treatment. He realized he was not the only child going through it and said he wanted to "give toys to kids to make them happier while they're sick". The desire was to collect toys and give them to as many kids as possible as they endured their grueling cancer treatment. The beautiful thought Calvin had became a reality in December 2015 and although Calvin had already entered heaven, we know he spearheaded this from the beginning.
Our first event consisted of gathering toys for children in hospitals. Having been in a similar situation; we knew something as simple as toys would help bring much needed smiles. We told our friends and family and they told their friends and family and so it began. Our first toy drive was held December 18, 2015 and it was magical.
