Hollywood Park students make valentines for kids in hospital

e-Connections Post Hollywood Park

Under the direction of the school’s leadership class, Hollywood Park Elementary School students recently made hundreds of valentines for patients at Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Sacramento.

To complete the community service project, kids stayed after school with parents and staff to decorate valentines. On January 28, the leadership class delivered the valentines to the hospital and listened to a presentation  by Penny Lewis, director of children’s activities for Shriner’s, on how the hospital serves children and families. Ms.Lewis discussed the volunteer work involved in running the hospital, and how the program is operated exclusively on private donations.

Hollywood Park students asked thoughtful questions and then presented their cards, which will be used to decorate bulletin boards and hallways at the hospital.
