Kiwanis seeks donations for activity packs for youth at hospitals

NT Staff

L-P Kiwanis supports Illinois Valley Community Hospital and St. Margaret’s Hospital with a program that provides activity packs for 3- to 12-year old children and their siblings who visit the emergency room, day surgery or outpatient care.

The activity kits are designed to help relax the children and reduce the stress of the situation.

“The hospitals tell us that the program is very welcomed and successful,” said Patricia Walters of L-P Kiwanis. “We are holding a community book drive for children/youth books and activity booklets to keep up with the replenishment needs.”

Through Sept. 30, drop off new or gently-used children’s/youth books and activity booklets at Coldwell Banker Today’s Realtors, 2409 Fourth St., Peru during regular business hours.
To arrange a pick-up or for more information, call Walters at (815) 488-3256.
