The Association of Childhood Education International and Kappa Delta Pi have joined forces again in 2011 to collect items for Lehigh Valley Hospital, St. Joseph's Hospital and St. Luke's Hospital's pediatric units, during the month of April. These items are to help sick children pass the time while they are in the hospital and help keep their mind off of what they are going through.
The items can include books, toys, stuffed animals, dolls, trucks, building blocks, legos, coloring books with crayons, games, card games, sudoku books, markers, puzzles, etc. anything children of all ages would enjoy. These gifts really help to put a smile on the children's faces and every donation is greatly appreciated.
The boxes for receiving the donations are located on the second floor of Beekey Education Hall, office 210. Members of both organizations will be visiting with the children at all three hospitals on select weekends during the month of April to spend time with the children and their parents, read, do activities (created by our education majors), as well as bring the donated items. All donations are greatly appreciated. The members of ACEI and KDP thank you for helping them brighten a child's day! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. Thank you! - Dr. Bazley, Dr. McMillan and Dr. Darrah.
