In loving memory of an Ocean Springs residents folks in the community are collecting donations.
Jaxon Eli Schoenberger was a six-year-old who passed away from DIPG, a rare childhood cancer, in 2014. Since then his family’s been collecting toys to donate in his honor to St. Jude’s Research Hospital.
Quake’s Ice Creamery is a drop off location. Owner Marie Garbin says helping is something she has to get behind. “For me, as a mom and for somebody in the community, to see all these kids come through, it’s just really touched my heart and it’s something I’m very thankful to be able to keep his memory alive as well as the other children that were affected by it. It’s the one good thing we can do after it’s all said and done.”
The toy drive wraps up November 29th and the toys are delivered December 6th.
