The Community Health House is running a drive for donations for children with congenital heart defects and their families until Monday, April 22nd. You may not be able to give these kids what they really need, which is a heart without a congenital defect, but you can still make a difference!
Locations: Drop-off boxes will be located in the lobbies of John Jay, Furnald, Broadway, Schapiro, EC and Wien.
Items: We are collecting many things, including hand sanitizer, personal packs of tissues, shampoo, soaps, lotion, lip balm, toothpaste, toothbrushes, socks, floss, eye masks and ear plugs (as the families of these children often have to stay at hospitals overnight while their children are undergoing surgery). We are also collecting any puzzle books, coloring books, crayons, stuffed animals, drawing pads, notebooks, memo books.
Any donations would be really appreciated and all items will be delivered to Boston Children’s Hospital to give to children and their families who are in Intensive Care Units.
