Donation went out to Shriners Childrens Hospital in St LouisBy
You know, it is always a wonderful experience to take donations to where they are needed. We love to go to Shriners Childrens Hospital in St Louis as there is a good feeling at the hospital and it feels marvelous to know that the children there get the help they need at no cost to them.
This time we thought that perhaps the hospital would be inundated with donations because of Christmas. Surprise, surprise – not so. When we took our donation, the bags were immediately gone through as personnel searched for warm clothing and blankets for children in ‘same day’ surgery needed them. Families who had very little needed warm blankets to take their children home in the cold weather. It really made us appreciate the need for our donations and glad we were there to help.
Here is what we took this week – personally delivered by the President – who loves to be knee deep in all the charity work with the volunteers!
