The Diocese of Trenton’s annual Catholic Schools Day of Service campaign extended over weeks in the spring of 2018, culminating on April 30 with a blessing by Bishop David M. O’Connell, CM of more than 6,000 items and thousands of dollars in cash and gift cards collected by students in 31 schools across Burlington, Mercer, Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Virtua Foundation represented one of twelve hospital systems, located throughout those counties, whose Child Life Departments will benefit from the generosity of these school children and their families. Students from the Catholic grammar schools in Burlington County visited Virtua Memorial Hospital in June to bring toys, books, gift cards, and handmade thank you cards to be distributed to caregivers throughout Virtua. They got to speak to a nurse and a physician, as well as a representative from Virtua’s Child Life team. Plans are already underway for next year’s “Hearts to Hospitals” campaign!
