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.
