Lourdes Holds Book Drive; Donations Benefit Young Children
Monday, November 5, 2012
Osborn Family Health Center -- a primary and specialty care center of Lourdes Medical Associates -- is sponsoring a book drive for its "Reach Out and Read" program. The program benefits children six-months to five-years-of-age and provides a new book to each child during his or her pediatric well-visit.
Doctors prescribe reading to a child every day as a way to prepare him or her for school. Lourdes works with volunteers from Camden's Medical Arts High School to read to children in its pediatric waiting areas.
Community members are invited to donate new books to Osborn Family Health Center, 1601 Haddon Avenue, Camden, NJ. Books can be dropped off at Osborn's reception area between 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Temporary parking is available at the oval in front of the building. Carts are available if needed.
