For those of you who have not heard, the Wayne State SLIS Alumni Association is teaming up with Hip Hop Knit Shop in an effort to bring books, toys, blankets, and stories to the patients at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan.
Here’s how you can get involved with this great cause:
-Drop off new toys or books to a bin at one of our participating libraries in the tri-county area (Oakland, Wayne, Washtenaw) between November 1st and December 12th. A list of libraries and accepted items can be found here.
