DVD drive benefits area hospitals
by Staff Writer
DAVIDSON – A group of Davidson Day School girls have brought a fun diversion to children at Levine Children’s Hospital and Presbyterian Hospital with a donation of more than 100 children’s DVDs to each.
The fifth-graders began collecting the DVDs earlier this year as part of a school service project. They encouraged their classmates to donate, reviewed each donation, made new DVD covers as needed, organized the movies and, in late May, delivered the donations. The school gave 105 DVDs to both hospitals.
“This project was truly driven by the enthusiasm of the students,” said art teacher Tiffani Thomas, who served as the project’s faculty advisor. “It’s been an incredible experience for them and they’ve learned that when we work together, we really can make a difference.”
