TUCSON - Local kids that rely on medical treatments are also relying on Lizzie's Loot which are donated toys.
She delivers them to the Diamond Children's Medical Center and the idea came from her own experience.
Lizzie Bell said, "I was in the hospital for my 15th birthday and that wasn't very fun because a day in the hospital is very tiring."
Lizzie's Loot helps about 800-kids a month, giving them a toy after treatment.
That means Lizzie is doing what she vowed to do and her mom, Kathy Bell, says she's proud.
Kathy Bell said, "Ms. Lizzie has definitely touched the world and her work touches burned kids, accident kids, surgery kids, transplant kids, cancer kids, and like herself marrow failure or anemia kids."
For now, Lizzie says she just wants to get her friends, in Southern Arizona, through Christmas.
Since October, Lizzie's Loot has collected over 3-thousand toys, but that supply won't last past February.
Every toy donated makes a difference.
Lizzie Bell said, "You bring in a toy, and we'll donate to the out patient at Diamond Children's Hospital."
If you want to donate to Lizzie's Loot, leave a toy at any C-V-S pharmacy, State Farm Insurance branch, or the Home Economic Store, at Park Place Mall.
