"It's wonderful that they took the time to think of other kids who may be less fortunate or having a hard time adjusting to being in a hospital," said Geddes. "The fact they think about things like this at this age is amazing."
The group's advisor, teacher Susan Hutchins, said she is very proud of the children for making the donation that will be a benefit to children waiting at the hospital or those who are there as patients.
"Reading is a wonderful way to pass the time and to have an adventure without actually going anywhere, using your imagination," said Hutchins. "I am proud of the students for wanting to help and expose other children to a variety of books and to give back to the community."
And, giving back to the community, the hospital in particular, is something anyone can do, said Parsons.
"It's pretty easy," he said. "All you have to do is buy a book and drop it off."
