Calling all HIM

The Thang:


It’s that time of year again, Pax of F3 Grand Strand, to participate in Operation Sweet Tooth.  We have had great success in years past, and we’re looking to build on that success again in 2018.  The mission of Operation Sweet Tooth is to provide hope and joy to children in need, in memory of Christina “Sweet Tooth” Latini.



1)  COLLECT toys for pediatric patients at Grand Strand Hospital.  These gifts are used in a number of ways.  Each child who is hospitalized around Christmas is given a gift from the hospital.  Additionally, many of the gifts are used throughout the year to occupy and entertain children (and their families) who have prolonged hospital stays.  And finally, the games, bubbles, capes, and other toys are used by the child life specialists to entertain children waiting to go back for surgery and other procedures.  Here are some details:

  • Each individual gift cannot exceed $15.  However, you can donate as many gifts under $15 as you would like.
  • See wish-list at the end of the post from the hospital
  • All gifts are due by 12/17
  • Gifts can be dropped off at:
    1. Any Village or Bombsquad workout (to Crankbait or the AOQ)
    2. The Christmas Party on 12/15
    3. Any Warthog, WaveRucker or Beachbells workout (OneCall)
    4. Convergence Drop-off (All Pax, 2.0s, Ms welcome) at Grand Strand Hospital, 6:30pm, South Tower Lobby
    5. Any responsible pax who will attend any of the above


2)  DONATE 2 remote controlled ride-on vehicles to Grand Strand Hospital.  These will be used to allow pediatric patients to “drive-themselves” back to the OR for surgery and other procedures.

  • Visit http://www.gf.me/u/n5ktmp to visit the GoFundMe page and donate today!
  • The fundraising goal of $600 will purchase the 2 ride-on vehicles.
  • All fundraising above the $600 will go toward purchasing more toys for donation


3)  CONVERGE for Toy Drop-off – Monday 12/17, 6:30pm at Grand Strand Hospital (South Tower Lobby – new entrance in 6 story tower)

  • All Ms, 2.0s, pax welcome
  • Waiver will have to be signed for all those in attendance to participate in convergence picture
