Fall is in the air and that means one thing- our book drive is in FULL effect! We gladly collect books all year, but during the fall we really step it up a notch.
This year we have teamed up with Dell Children’s Medical Center’s Palliative Care Team as well as CPATH Texas for our annual Special Needs Holiday party. Each year we have been so excited to include more and more kids and we have grown so much that we outgrew our previous party spot. This year the party will take place in the main Live Strong Auditorium at Dell Children’s.
We are working hard to make sure that this year’s party is bigger and better than all the previous parties- and we need your help to make that happen. We need children’s books (new or gently used). Books are great gifts for all kids, but especially for kids with special needs. There are lots of ways that you can contribute…
- Contact us by sending an email and we can work out a time and place to pick-up or drop-off your personal donation.
- Do a book drive in your office, church, classroom, etc and let us know so we can be sure to says thanks and set up a time to pick-up the books.
- If you would like to donate money to go toward book purchases, you can always do that as well. Click on the donate button below, or you can also donate in the Fundraiser section.
We try to have a few books for each child and their siblings from Santa. For many kids that attend, this is their only holiday party and their only opportunity to see Santa, so we try to make is as special as possible.
As we have done in previous years, all books not used as Santa gifts are then donated to the Dell Children’s library and handed out to children inpatient.
We have already lined up Santa, a holiday music sing-a-long with the amazing Danielle, a sensory story, crafts, snacks and much more. Our biggest needs now are books, books and more books. Please help by donating your new or gently used books, and please encourage others to do the same. Thank you for your support.
The party is scheduled Saturday, December 12th 2-4pm. We will be collecting books through Tuesday, December 8th. Stay tuned for ticket information and more party details.
