Two More Hospitals Full of Kids to Send a Smile To!

Send a Smile 4 Kids is growing again! I am very happy to announce that we have a new volunteer and two new children's hospitals in Florida to send your cards to! LeeAnn McKinney is now accepting cards for the children who are inpatient in Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, Hollywood, FL and Golisano Children's Hospital of SW Florida, Fort Myers, Fl.

That brings the total number of hospitals we serve to 14!

We are grateful to LeeAnn for volunteering to accept your cards and distribute them to these two new hospitals. Both hospitals are affiliated with Ronald McDonald Houses so the children's families can stay close by and may use the cards we send too.

Here is the new address to send your cards to:

LeeAnn McKinney
128 Taft Blvd.
Clewiston, FL 33440

Currently, please send most of your cards to LeeAnn's address to give her a great start, or to Janet's address in Illinois. The other locations have enough cards for the time being. It is never too early to start making fall and winter holiday cards so that all the children in all the hospitals will receive one and also be able to pick out some to give or send to family and friends they are missing if inpatient on those holidays. All locations will have a need for holiday cards.

**Please include your name and email address in your boxes of cards so any of the volunteers who receive them can email our thanks and acknowledgement of the receipt of your box.**

Thanks to LeeAnn for volunteering and thank to all of you who send in your handmade cards to cheer the kids in the 14 hospitals we now serve!
