Lodi UMC Buys 180 Books for Children's Hospital
Members of Lodi United Methodist Church and their friends and customers at the church hosted Glorious Garden Festival and raised a fund that was enough to buy 180 books for patients at the American Family Children's Hospital in Madison. This mission engaged a partnership with Scholastic for a book fair event where each purchase of two books allowed a free donation of one extra book.
Mary Jeanne Hecht, Child Life Assistant at AFCH, shares, “Thank you so very much for your incredible donation of books for patients and families at American Family Children's Hospital. There is such an amazing assortment of books for all ages. It is evident you gave thoughtful consideration to the diversity of our patient population as well. Thank you for the bottom of our hearts! Books bring much needed diversion and entertainment to children during hospital stays and beyond. We appreciate all your hard work and generosity. Thank you for thinking of AFCH."
