Children’s Hospital Book Market needs books

Winnipeg, MB (November 2, 2022) – The Children’s Hospital Book Market is looking for new and gently used book donations to be dropped off now in preparation for the spring book sale on April 21 and 22, 2023 at St. Vital Centre. Community members are asked to drop off books to Winnipeg firehalls or Dufresne Furniture Stores in Manitoba.

After two years on hold due to COVID-19, the recent 2022 fall Book Market raised over $246,000 for sick and injured kids who need HSC Children’s Hospital! Children’s Hospital Foundation and Book Market volunteers are thankful to the supportive shoppers that made fall Book Market a success. 

And now – there is room at the Book Market sorting centre to accept more materials! Please drop off your books including fiction, sports, self-help, children’s books and more, to support the next Children’s Hospital Book Market.

Funds raised for the Foundation at Book Market will go towards the $75 million Better Futures campaign, Manitoba’s largest-ever donor-driven campaign in support of child health.

The Better Futures campaign focuses on three areas of strategic priority in pediatric health care: critical infrastructure and facilities, leading-edge pediatric research on childhood illnesses, and innovative programs to bring comfort to families in hospital, like the Child Life programming the Book Market supports.
