This week, Success Won’t Wait volunteers were thrilled to partner with Cab Calloway senior Jacquelyn Janocha, president of the school’s Interact Club and a member of the Young Friends of Christiana Care program. This community service-based program is composed of a group of dedicated high school students focused on leadership and philanthropy, as well as programs that enhance the patient care experience.
Success Won’t Wait provided 200+ new children’s books to support the group and their efforts at the Wilmington Hospital Health Center Pediatric Clinic. The donation included a wide variety of books, from baby board books to YA novels, for hospital patients ranging in age from 6 months to 16 years of age.
Many thanks to Jacquelyn Janocha and her mom Deb Janocha (pictured) who coordinated the Success Won’t Wait book drive, and to all of those volunteers at The Young Friends of Christiana Care for encouraging Delawareans to get involved and make a difference.
