Two Local Children Make Anonymous Coloring Book Donation to St. Joseph Health Regional Hospital


Two Local Children Make Anonymous Coloring Book Donation to St. Joseph Health Regional Hospital Bryan, TX, November 30, 2017—Two young girls carried their piggy bank and $90 allowance in to St. Joseph Health Regional Hospital. They were coloring while they waited for a loved one to have a procedure and felt like it would be nice to purchase coloring books for other young visitors or patients. According to one of the children’s family members, who accompanied them to the hospital to make the donation, the two girls had the idea to donate coloring books when they visited the hospital over the Thanksgiving holiday. As they were coloring, the two girls reportedly began to discuss how sad they were that other children in the hospital were there on the holiday and probably didn’t have anything else to do. The children and their family, who made the donation anonymously, pooled their combined saved money and piggy bank, about $113, to make the donation. “We want to thank this family and especially these kind and thoughtful girls for this generous donation,” said Chuck Konderla, Director of the St. Joseph Health Foundation. “Their gift will impact so many, spreading cheer to so many other children here at Regional Hospital. They did not give a portion of the money they had, they gave all they had in their piggy bank, and we are humbled and inspired.” About St. Joseph Health Cancer Center: Since 1936 St. Joseph Health has been caring for the communities of Bryan, College Station, Brenham, Hearne, Navasota, Caldwell, Madisonville and Bellville.
