Through their collaborative efforts, the entire fourth grade at Bowling Green Elementary School held a book drive that yielded more than 300 books for pediatric patients at Nassau University Medical Center.

Before the collection began, the students created flyers, delivered morning announcements and visited classrooms explaining the purpose of the drive, which was to collect gently used or new books for children at NUMC and their families.

Linda Walsh, the NUMC executive director for the NuHealth Foundation, visited the school on Feb. 17 to accept the numerous boxes of donations and thank the fourth-graders for improving the lives of patients with the gift of a good book.
