Please do not drop off book donations
Winnipeg, MB (May 4, 2022) – The Children’s Hospital Book Market remains on hold. No books are being collected and the public is reminded to please not drop off donations at firehalls or Dufresne Furniture and Appliances stores.
The Book Market has been on hold since spring 2020 and volunteers have been unable to gather to sort and organize donated items. Thanks to generous community members, there are still many donated books in storage and new ones cannot be accepted.
The Book Market typically raises over $300,000 of the $500,000 needed to fund important programs that comfort children in hospital. These include:
- Children’s Hospital TV (CHTV), the in-house TV station that provides free programming for all patients and broadcasts a live, daily show to engage and entertain kids in hospital
- Music Therapy
- The Book Corner and Family Information Library
- The playroom, that has not only toys but a mini hospital environment where kids can learn about procedures and treatments they will experience in hospital
If you would like to support kids in hospital with the gift of play, please consider making a donation similar to the amount you would have spent on a book here.
