Book Drive for Festival | Blank Children's Hospital of Des Moines

Book Drive

Help celebrate the 2018 Festival of Trees & Lights by donating books for children who are patients at Blank Children's Hospital. Child Life staff help young patients pass the time by reading to them, or providing books to children to read while in the hospital. In addition, patients are invited to take a new children's book home with them after a visit or clinic appointment.

Help us have the supply of books we need each year by holding a book drive in your community. Groups donating more than 100 books will receive special recognition at Festival.

Donations of new, developmentally and culturally appropriate books. The primary need is for books for children from toddler to middle school, although books for older children are also needed. We request no books about sensitive issues like divorce, abuse or death.
