Same Agenda each year? You Bet! We're Dedicated and Consistent!
"Traditional" Agenda includes:
- As a component
of our "Readers
Are Leaders Program", we will
donate books to the Stroger County
for children that visit the
clinic. It will allow the Doctors and Nurses to "prescribe" a book to a
sick child. The child will get to take the books home!
- We will supply the Ruth
Rothstein Core Center For Children with AIDS,
books to give to their
children upon their visits. Also, we will have our annual
“Readers Are Leaders” party, in which, the children
will enjoy food, games, entertainment and fun. The children will get to
select books and prizes to take home! This year, the children will
enjoy a visit by Benny the Bull and Yo Go the Clown!
- An Art Center has been
established and will continue to be funded for the pediatric ward at La
Ribida Hospital and John Stroger Hospital. This gives children in the
hospital an opportunity to enjoy art activities during their stay.

Easter Baskets to over 25
locations in Northern Illinois. They will be used for children in
residential, foster, clinical and hospital care over the Easter weekend.
