Hatchimals are one of the hottest toys this holiday season, as shown by the toys’ immediate absence on store shelves and high prices on resale sites. BAT’s Executive Vice President/Owner Jarrod Marinello got his hands on one, and decided to use the Hatchimals toy to give back to Fisher House.
Fisher House offers housing, food and even transportation to family members of patients at major military and VA hospitals. Marinello’s brother is a patient at the Polytrauma Rehab Hospital next door to the Minneapolis Fisher House.
“Because people at Fisher were so kind, I asked if they had children staying there,” Marinello said. “They said yes, one boy who was basically living there with family.”
Without hesitation, Marinello and BAT Logistics donated the Hatchimals toy to the Fisher House so the organization could make the holidays a little better for that child and his family.
