Since 2013 Lakeland Pools & Spas has been sponsoring a toy drive, Harrison's Toy Box, in memory of co-owner, Tracey Shauger's son, Harrison, who passed away in March of 2013 at the age of 6 from congenital heart disease. Harrison spent a lot of time at Lakeland Pools and our customers always enjoyed interacting with him. He would always make our customers laugh and he always had a smile on his face. Tracey, her husband Moose, and daughter Emily donate the toys to the Pediatric Center for Heart Disease in Hackensack NJ on Harrison's birthday each year where Harrison was a patient. The Center gives these toys to the children who go to the Center for visits. Harrison received a toy every time he had a visit to the Center and always left with a smile on his face. Each child receives a toy as they leave the doctors office and this is one way that the Shauger Family and Lakeland Pools can make sure that each patient goes home with same way Harrison did, with a toy and a smile. The first year we collected 200 toys and in 2017 the Shauger Family presented the Center with over 1200 toys.
