The Masonic Toys For Tots program began in 1975 as a way for Masons to give young cancer patients a way to forget their sickness. Today, along with the Children’s Cancer and Blood Foundation (CCBF), a world-renowned and privately funded Pediatric Hematology/Oncology medical research effort serving the New York Presbyterian Hospital and Weill-Cornell University Medical College.

This year, thanks to the efforts of medical professionals like Dr. Gerald Loughlin and author Carol Higgins Clark, the Masonic Toys for Tots raised over 5,000 toys for sick children served by the CCBF.
