Our fire department (Alachua County Fire Rescue) visits the children in the local hospital on a monthly basis; we use a radio flyer wagon that is filled with goodies, that one of our fire fighters would purchase out of his own pocket. The fire fighters will walk from room to room just saying hello to the children and their family members and provide a fire hat and another little something special. I used to walk with them when they did this. I also used my personal radio flyer wagon, when we were canvasing neighborhoods post a home fire to deliver and install smoke alarms for free. I kept this old wagon in the back of my personal vehicle and one day, I was watching this homeless family with their children walking along a side walk and pulled over and gave them my wagon so that the kids could ride instead of walk. Now I have grandchildren of my own and I am looking to purchase another red wagon to pull them around in.
Last week my 3 & 1/2 year old granddaughter was rushed to the hospital having an asthma attack. She was admitted and I was trying to decided what to bring to her. Her mom (a teacher) was in the hospital with her and they were coloring with crayons while she in bed. I started telling my husband that when I was little about 5 or 6 years old my cousin broke her leg. My mother was busy buying her presents like books and coloring books to bring to her at the hospital. I told him how my aunt who did not drive had to take my cousin to school via a Radio Flyer Little Red Wagon. I was so jealous of the coloring books and the Radio Flyer wagon
