Goddard School donates books to Texas Children’s Hospitals in Houston

October 11, 2018

Texas locations of Goddard School, an early childhood education provider franchise, have collected books to donate to Texas Children’s Hospital.

According to a press release from The Goddard School, preschoolers from all locations in the Houston area collected a total of more than 10,000 books for book nooks at Texas Children’s Hospitals in Houston.

The Goddard School donated the books to Texas Children’s Hospitals on Oct. 10, delivering the books to be sorted and put into the book nooks. Sarah Prause, owner of The Goddard School of Cypress, said the Houston branches saw a need after a different location worked with Texas Children’s Hospital.

“One of the schools here has been working with Texas Children’s Hospitals, and we kind of got talking with the librarian that there are several book nooks,” she said. “We decided we would all come together as a market.”

The donation is not an often occurrence for Goddard, but the organization hopes to donate again if Texas Children’s Hospital has the need, Prause said.

“It would definitely be a recurring thing in the future depending on how they receive it,” she said. “The kiddos were very excited to bring in old books they weren’t using anymore. We set it to 1,000 books for each [location] and some went over.”
