ECBC had a fun and productive Thursday this week, getting books and reading to three different areas of CHOC! ECBC teamed up with MaxLove Project’s BeSuper Party for our monthly Super Book Give-Away in the hospital lobby, where we gave away books to patients and siblings of all ages. Next, we delivered books to the Outpatient Infusion Center, re-stocking their shelves with 150 new books. Finally, ECBC’s expert Bedside Readers read aloud to the Oncology and Neurology and patients on the 5th floor while also giving away books to patients in isolation using our mobile book cart. So fun to reach so many patients at CHOC today!

ECBC had so much fun today with the MaxLove Project at the BeSuper Holiday Party at CHOC Children’s Hospital! Kids crafted ornaments, received toys from the amazing student veterans of Saddleback College, met children’s book author Alane Adams and received signed copies of her beautiful “Thief” picture books, and picked out holiday-themed books to keep! And afterwards, we delivered toys and holiday books to the Outpatient Infusion Center—their shelves are stocked with books again! Thank you Child Life at CHOC for hosting us — we are so honored to be able to give back and bring holiday cheer to hospitalized SuperKids!
ECBC had so much fun at our Super Book Give-Away today with MaxLove Project at CHOC Children’s Hospital! Patients and Super Sibs crafted fall wreaths with MLP’s Camp Make & Believe, and they walked away with one to several new books. We also dropped off about 100 new books at the Outpatient Infusion Center, since their bookshelves are almost always empty (we just committed to doing a drop-off to OPI monthly). We’re so happy to be bringing books to patients regularly now! #ReadThinkThrive #HospitalizedKidsNeedBooksToo #BeSuper #ThriveAgainstCancer
Ethan & Choco’s Book Club LOVED handing out Halloween books to patients today as part of CHOC’s annual trick-or-treating event! This event is amazing, roughly 200 booths all over the second floor of the hospital, and ECBC was the only booth giving books! We gave away about 300 terrific books to dressed-up patients of all ages — and kids, parents, and staff seemed thrilled! Thank you MaxLove Project for being there and for handing out Dr. Johns sugar free candies!! We are so proud to be offering healthier treats! And a super thank you to Arroyo Elementary School, NLYM Tustin 2020, Once Upon a Storybook, Tod and Sharon Paris, Ashley Hemphill Netsky, Rob and Brooke Lieberman, the Stahl Family, the Adzich family, and the MANY many individual donors who made our first Books for Treats booth a success!
