Giants Donate Play Center To Hospitalized Children

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – The San Francisco General Pediatric Department has a new fun center courtesy of Major League Baseball and the Giants.

KCBS’ Margie Shafer Reports:

Kids on the sixth floor of San Francisco General, who are suffering from cancer, or sickle-cell anemia, now have a mobile fun center to help combat anxiety and weariness, courtesy of MLB and the Giants.

”What’s great about this particular fun center is that it can be moved all across the hospital,” said Justine Alberto with The Starlight Foundation. “You can roll it up right to the child’s bed.”

The Giants’ mascot Lucille visited the kids, along with Giants great Juan Marichal.

”I think it’s wonderful,” said Marichal. “I think that Major League Baseball is doing a wonderful job, along with the San Francisco Giants, in providing this kind of equipment for the kids.”

The fun center features Wii games.
