COLUMBIA COUNTY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The 2022 Regan’s Act of Kindness Ornament Drive is underway. The Shetsky family is collecting new, unwrapped Christmas ornaments to give to children and babies at the Albany Medical Center and the Fairview Hospital this holiday season.

Regan’s Act of Kindness was created after Regan Shetsky passed away at the age of three in January 2017 after being hit by a car in a nursery parking lot. Since then, Regan’s family has focused on paying it forward and building or improving playgrounds and gardens and providing children with safe and fun spaces.
