Dartmouth-Hitchcock Delivery

Last spring when one of our team members became ill she requested that blankets and books be given to children’s hospitals throughout our community to bring cheer to children who are suffering, and quite probably bored while lying in bed in a hospital.

Wonderland BookSavers has been raising funds, creating Knot-Yet-a-Blanket kits, packaged with books, and distributing these gift bags to the Child Life teams in pediatric hospitals in which various team members and friends have been patients.

Partnering with Wetherbee School in Lawrence Massachusetts, dozens of children from this Title I school have been able to participate in their own “service project” by creating amazing paintings for our gift bags.

We were excited to return to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hospital in Hanover, NH. The team at CHAD, Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, is terrific., and they took great care of one of our team members.
