Motts Hospital Shower for the Children and Babies Mar 10 1- 3pm Everyone is invited to bring a wrapped gift for a child being treated at the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital of the University of Michigan. Our goal is to provide the hospital with the non- medical supplies that will help in the healing process: stuffed animals, Beanie Babies, Action Figures, Barbie’s, fun Band-Aids, bubbles, gel pens, Uno cards, dry erase boards - you get the idea! Enjoy a light luncheon, provided by the Breakfast group of the Plymouth Canton Kiwanis, while a hospital representative opens each gift. You will learn how this legendary hospital cares for our own children as well as those from around the world. This is a fun way to truly help. We’ll even play Baby Bingo. Please RSVP with the Senior Desk. A Wish List is available from the Motts Children’s Hospital. 7470.149 Maple/Oak Room Sa
