Ethan & Choco's Book Club

Striving to make access to books and reading a core part of the care that SuperKids receive in the hospital, with the principal premise that literacy support for children fighting cancer and other life-threatening conditions can help promote cognitive development and social connections that are part of thriving through treatment and beyond

Foothill High School’s Ethan & Choco’s Club!

Foothill High School’s ECBC Club is off to a great start this year! To date, they participated in club rush to recruit members, were part of the school-wide clubs fundraiser Feast and Joust, held their first informational meeting of the year, and have filled their board positions for the year. And today, they made Halloween bookmarks for our BOO-ks for Treats event at the end of the month and also completed “Thrive Buddy” literature responses for our book bags for kids diagnosed with cancer. (see photo below with today’s terrific turnout!). The club plans to continue to create literacy support materials for CHOC patients as well as run book drives and fundraisers. Keep it up FHS ECBC Club!

Thank You Evan!

A HUGE shout out to Foothill High School senior Evan Antonius for the awesome boxes of books you delivered last night! Evan conducted his own BOOK IT book drive, collecting books that we are asking for on our Amazon BOOK IT 2020 wish list, so they are all high-quality books that ECBC needs for specific programs and patients. Evan has also been holding his own fundraiser on our virtual BOOK IT campaign website, and he’s almost 2/3 of the way to his fundraising goal. THANK YOU Evan for taking the initiative to support reading for hospitalized kids, many of whom are battling cancer. We appreciate you so much! To support Evan’s fundraising efforts, go to:
