Stories Heal – we all know this in the depth of our reader hearts, so this year, we are partnering with the Pediatrics Unit at Riverside University Health System (RUHS) - formerly Riverside County Regional Medical Clinic– to get new books in both Spanish and English to kids 0-18. The number of kids varies, but somewhere between 200-400 children in a month is not unusual. We’d like to give books to children and their families to take home as well as creating a library in the pediatric playroom, so we have work to do. We invite you to join us and here is how you can participate:
- Come into the store and purchase a book or two to donate to the kids. We’ll make sure the books get to the hospital.
- Purchase a Cellar Select Gift Box to donate – just put NA in the spaces that ask for specific guidelines and let us know at checkout that this is for the kids in the hospital.
- Purchase an online gift certificate (when it asks for recipient, just put email@example.com) OR a Cellar Door Books Gift Card (be sure to select in store pick-up) and designate in the comments for donation to RUHS. These can be for any amount and may be the perfect way to help your little people explore the gift of giving.
