The Makenna Foundation, a non-profit organization that helps support Kentucky Children’s Hospital, is partnering with Barnes & Noble in Hamburg for a book fair and drive to benefit KCH’s Child Life Program.
The KCH Child Life Program is a service that provides patients and families with play opportunities. Through playing, KCH patients are given the opportunity to experience normal childhood growth and to reduce the stress of being in a hospital.
Some activities the Child Life Program offers are:
- Individualized play in the child’s own room.
- A large playroom with toys, games and more.
- Encouraging reading.
The Child Life Program also includes a Multi-Media Room, complete with computers for patients to use.
The book fair will be held Nov. 26 at the Hamburg Barnes & Noble, with all proceeds going to the Makenna Foundation. Customers will have the option of donating 10 to 20 percent of their purchases.
And, from Nov. 1 to Dec. 31, you can also donate books you purchased at the Hamburg Barnes & Noble to KCH as part of the book drive.
