Last Friday, high school students Alana and Joy made an extremely generous donation to the Women & Children's Hospital welcome bags that are received by our patients upon admission: 154 coloring/word search books, 108 boxes of crayons, 8 boxes of flash cards and 34 baby rattles! The girls began the donation drive, “Coloring Books 4 Kids", in late May by collecting goods and money outside of Big Lots in North Buffalo, and through their Facebook Page, Alana&Joy's Coloring Books 4 Kids.

Great job ladies! Thank you so much for your hard work and thoughtfulness!
