Your Healthy Family: Kids donate books to pediatric patients

COLORADO SPRINGS -

On Friday, students from Ute Pass and Manitou Springs elementary schools stopped by Memorial Hospital, to give books and valentine themed bookmarks to pediatric patients at Children's Hospital.
The students with the Manitou Service Corps took the books to "spread the love of reading." 
"We love to help kids and we are happy to serve," said Lauren Reed, student. 
"The service corps is mostly about giving and helping so we just wanted to keep that going," said Grace McCumber, student. 
"Give them a little bit of joy for valentines day," said Becky Cicero, student. 
The 30 books were purchased through a grant with Partners for Healthy Choices.
"What it demonstrates is connection of the community to the efforts in caring for children here in Colorado Springs," said Dr. William Hardin with Children's Hospital at Memorial Hospital.
