Ludlowe holds Book Box Drive to support pediatric trauma victims

The National English Honors Society at Fairfield Ludlowe High School announces the First Annual Book Box Drive in support of pediatric trauma victims at Bridgeport Hospital, 267 Grant Street, Bridgeport. The drive runs from Oct. 24-Nov. 12.

The community is encouraged to donate new or gently used books for children in need at the following drop box locations: the Fairfield YMCA, 841 Old Post Road and the Fairfield Recreation Center, 75 Mill Plain Road.

Founder, Fairfield Ludlowe High School senior and National English Honor Society (NEHS) Member Caroline Wolstenholme, initiated this drive after personally experiencing pediatric trauma followed by a lengthy wait in the Emergency Department while awaiting treatment from a specific surgeon who was en route.

In an effort to alleviate mounting fear and anxiety for children facing the same, Wolstenholme hopes to provide each and every pediatric trauma patient at Bridgeport Hospital with a story book distraction, they can later bring home.

The NEHS would like to thank their supporters: Spic and Span Market, Trinity Church Preschool and the Southport Congregational Church and greatly appreciates your donations and support.
