We just delivered new, high-quality books of all types to re-stock our library cart and bookshelves at CHOC’s Outpatient Infusion Center and CHOC’s Oncology Clinic, respectively. We also replenished CHOC Oncology’s inventory of our Read Think Thrive Bags for kids newly diagnosed with cancer, so that they can start their battle with cancer with the best materials that make it easier for parents to promote cognitive health and thrivership during treatment. It really is the best feeling to fill bookshelves with awesome, high-quality literature that many of these patients wouldn’t otherwise have access to! #readthinkthrive #cognitivehealth #thriveagainstcancer
This week ECBC delivered our first books of the year, 360 of them — 168 books to re-stock our library cart at the Outpatient Infusion Center and 192 books to fill up our newly established Gifting Library at CHOC’s outpatient oncology clinic. Now, every child visiting CHOC’s Outpatient Infusion Center and the Oncology Clinic will be offered a new, high-quality and age-appropriate book at their visits.
The cost to replenish these gifting libraries is about $3000/month, which we hope we can sustain but depend 100% on donations in order to do so. To help with a monetary donation, click here. Currently, we are lowest on board books and Spanish books, with no backup supply at all. To donate either of these types of books, click here (board books) and here (Spanish). We also are very low on information/fact books (click here to purchase off the wish list), graphic novels (click here), and teen/young adult books (click here).
Thank you for helping kids thrive through treatment with high-quality books and reading!
