Warning: Wiggly Warm Toes can lead to Warm and Cozy Hearts

hospitalboy2.jpegResident Kellie Davideit is on a mission:  A mission to help children hospitalized during the holiday season feel community love and support from the feet-up.  Kellie is organizing a collection of new slippers as a special little "we love you" message to the kids.

 

Organized in remembrance of the joyful spirit of her son Ian, Kellie saw first hand how a lost pair of favorite slippers could disappoint an already overly-burdened child.  In memory of her son, Kellie decided to reach out in a way that would make an immediate impact.  While in the hospital, little children have to do without so much.  A new pair of slippers brings cheer in a happy and meaningful way.

Last year's collection was a success with 100 pairs of slippers donated. But the prior year, Kellie collected over 150 pairs - a number she's hoping to reach again this year. 

 

According to Kellie "this program has been very well-received and so appreciated by the children, parents of patients, and the wonderful Pediatric staff at St. Peter's hospital.  Please help us in collecting NEW Children's Slippers for St. Peter's Pediatric Patients, so we can keep their toes warm and brighten their day!"

 

If you are interested in participating:

 

Wanted:   new slippers for boys and girls in infant, toddler, and youth sizes

Drop off:   at the Davideit home at 27 Bounty Street, Metuchen (leave in bag on porch)

When:      now until 12/15
