Local hospital receives gifts for young patients

HCA Florida Oak Hill Hospital received 50 gift bags for pediatric emergency patients that include a handmade car, coloring book and crayons, all donated compliments of community member Anthony Caponigro. Caponigro, 82, has been donating these gifts for the past five years out of the goodness of his heart and the desire to give back to others.

“I’ve really been fortunate in my life,” Caponigro said. “I was a correctional officer for 25 years and I’ve seen the worst and the very best in people. I want to live my best and give back to others, especially to kids. To be in a hospital for a holiday has got to be terrible. I remember when I was 4 and I had my tonsils out and it was terrible! I want to brighten their day with these gifts.”
