Book drive

for Bridgeport

The National English Honors Society at Fairfield Ludlowe High School is holding the First Annual BOOK BOX DRIVE in support of pediatric trauma victims at Bridgeport Hospital.

Caroline Wolstenholme initiated the drive after personally experiencing pediatric trauma followed by a lengthy wait in the emergency department while awaiting treatment from a specific surgeon who was en route. In an effort to alleviate mounting fear and anxiety for children facing the same, the senior hopes to provide each and every pediatric trauma patient at Bridgeport Hospital with a story book distraction that they can later bring home.

The drive ends Nov. 12. The community is encouraged to donate new or gently used books for children in need.

Drop box locations include:

The Fairfield YMCA, 841 Old Post Road;

The Fairfield Recreation Center, 75 Mill Plain Road.

The NEHS would like to thank their supporters: Spic and Span Market, Trinity Church Preschool and the Southport Congregational Church and greatly appreciates all donations and support.
