Border's Theresa Burton with Hunter McDaniel
Borders of Burleson held a book drive benefiting sick children at Huguley Memorial Medical Center, and Borders customers donated more than 700 new children’s books.
Borders employees Herb Hays and Theresa Burton delivered the boxes of books to Huguley and immediately distributed the books to the sick children present in the emergency department. Each child was able to pick their favorite book from the collection.
Ms. Burton was able to bring a smile to the face of six children in the emergency department that evening. “It was so much fun to see the children happy,” said Ms. Burton, who is also a local actress.
Mr. Hays, Borders Corporate & Educational Sales stated, “When our store decided to collect children’s book donations for a non-profit organization, Huguley was the first one that came to our mind. We were pleased to have the opportunity to build upon our successful relationship with Huguley.”
The remaining books will be handed out to children in the Huguley emergency department or children admitted to the hospital.
