Natchitoches 4-H’er collects cars for patients at Shiners Hospital

4H Cars - 2019

For the past several months, Natchitoches Parish 4-H’er Joel Garcie collected new Hot Wheels car sets in anticipation of donating them for use at the Shreveport Shriners Hospital. As a longtime patient receiving care for juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, Joel combined his own love of the venerable toy cars with a desire to help boost the spirits of his fellow patients. With the help of friends and family, he plans on making his toy drive a continuing initiative.
