Before the holiday break First Class Petty Officers stationed aboard the guided-missile frigate USS Robert G. Bradley (FFG 49) donated more than $600 worth of toys to the Wolfson Children's Hospital in Jacksonville.
The First Classes took the time to give disadvantaged children a better chance for enjoying the holidays while they are away from home.
The Wolfson's Children Hospital is a safe haven for children with over 199 beds providing world-class care for those in need and the only full-service tertiary hospital for children in the region, serving North Florida and South Georgia.
Electrician's Mate 1st Class Noland B. Mitchell, the president of the First Class Association on board RGB, said the event was humbling.
"It was great to be able to bring holiday cheer to those who aren't able to come home for the holidays," said Mitchell.
USS Robert G. Bradley, homeported out of Mayport, Fla., is currently scheduled to decommission on March 28 after 30 years of faithful service.
