GH Cast Members Kick Off “25 Days Of Christmas” Toys For Tots Holiday Drive – Photo Gallery

Cast members from General Hospital celebrated “25 Days of Christmas” with a shopping spree at the Glendale Disney Store for Toys for Tots.

On hand were: Donnell Turner (Curtis), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), William deVry (Julian), Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina), Josh Swickard (Chase), Eden McCoy (Josslyn), Chris Van Etten (Chet) along with the series EP, Frank Valentini, and Bill Burton ( Sr. ABC VP Daytime, Sports and Syndication)

As part of the “25 Days of Christmas” celebration on Disney|ABC Television, for every new, unwrapped toy donated at a Disney store in the U.S. or online through shopDisney.com,

Disney store | shopDisney will donate $5 to Toys for Tots, up to $1 million.  The campaign runs through Saturday,  December 15, 2018.

Additionally, beginning now through December 25 in the DisneyNOW app, if a user plays a mini-game on the “25 Days of Christmas” activity page, their gameplay will “unwrap” one gift.  Once 500,000 digital gifts have been “unwrapped,” Disney will make a $25,000 donation to Toys for Tots.

Toys for Tots, a 71-year national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season.  The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributedby the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime.  It is such experiences that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community.  Last year the Marine Toys for Tots Program fulfilled the holiday hopes and dreams of 7 million less fortunate children in 800 communities nationwide.  Since 1947 over 251 million children have been assisted. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is a not for profit organization authorized by the U.S. Marine Corps and the Department of Defense to provide fundraising and other necessary support for the annual Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.  For more information, visit www.toysfortots.org

Frank Valentini, “Donna Messina (Department Head, Makeup & Hair) joined the family on 8/26/1982. To say her presence will be missed is an understatement. She was an incredibly warm, witty and all around great gal. Our thoughts go out to her loved ones.”

Laura Wright: “We lost our GH mom ……. you will be deeply missed

Genie Francis: “God bless sweet Donna Messina. A great friend and mother hen of us all. We went to her with our feelings, we could speak freely & we knew we were safe..and when we needed it, she would give us a stern no bull talking to, to set us straight. There was no better friend. Godspeed.

Dominic Zamprogna: “Donna welcomed me and treated me like a long lost Italian family member from day 1. Always supportive always smiling. Heart. Broken. Rest easy beautiful Donna.”

Maurice Benard:  “Sometimes you meet someone in life you connect with and unfortunately life just takes that person away.  And no matter how much your heart breaks you want to remember the good times.  My best friend, my sister, Donna used to hate taking pictures.. I used to have to grab her and hold her. And we would laugh and laugh.  I will never forget this memory, and I will never forget what you meant in my life.”

Nancy Lee Grahn: “My longest & dearest friend at GH was deeply private. I hold that sacred as I do her life & afterlife. Still, TY for ur kind words of support. Love abounds here today.”

Jean Passassante: “I’m devastated about Donna. I’ll always remember her kindness in trying to glitz me up for parties, and how she was everyone’s wise pal. Or Mom. Thinking of you, Mo, and the rest of the GH family.”
