This week, Wilmington Hospital received over 250 children’s books from Success Won’t Wait for their new book giveaway program.
Instead of simply having children’s literature available to read while waiting, Wilmington Hospital wanted to go one step further and allow children to take the books home once the were ready to leave. When we learned about this great program, we had to get involved.
So, some of our best volunteers got busy and selected, cleaned and labeled the children’s books for a wide variety of kids — from pre-K through middle school. They also included a range of topics — from dinosaurs, to fairies, to mysteries, and even some joke books.
Many thanks to volunteers Addie Berger, Sophia Chen, Anna Gonye, Claire Gonye, Christine McNeill and Julianna Short for their hard work on the project!
