With 25,000 pieces and counting, Christian Sforza’s Lego holiday village was rapidly outgrowing his grandmother’s kitchen table. And when he thought about finding a place where he could share the village with other kids and their families, the answer was just up the street: The Scarborough Hospital (TSH).
Christian has lived in Scarborough his whole life, and his family has close ties with the hospital. In 1998, TSH Emergency Department doctors saved his mother’s life when she had a life threatening racing heart. In 2002, Christian was born at TSH and, in recent years, several members of his family have been cared for at the hospital.
As part of our Give the Gift of Health holiday campaign, Christian has built his Lego village at TSH’s General campus. It will be on display from Tuesday, December 1 until after the holidays.
The delightful holiday scene will bring cheer and smiles to patients, their families, and the Scarborough community throughout the holiday giving season. Looking at the detailed village – and counting how many reindeer Santa has pulling his sleigh – is free, but this season, you can give the gift of health and help transform care for babies and children.
