Officers, children donate art prints to Children's Hospital
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -
Children from all over Savannah joined forces with Metro Police Officers to help with renovations at the Children's Hospital at Memorial Health.
On Thursday, three framed pieces of original art were donated to the hospital to help brioghten things up for the young patients.
"Quite frankly we couldn't stay a children's hospital without community support," said Senior VP CSO, Memorial Health, Bill Lee. "We serve a community. We serve a lot of children. We served over 60,000 children at the children's hospital here at memorial and we couldn't do what we do without community support."
Sebastian Edwards of Blick Art Materials was also on hand.
"We were happy when approached by Cpl. Lewis to provide the framing they needed for this project and chip into this wonderful new renovation of the children's hospital here," said Edwards.
Capt. Devon Adams of the Central Precinct said, "A small thing like giving a handprint that costs nothing is enough to bring a smile to a kid's face."
The artwork is called "Kids Prints". It was created during several of this summer's Roll Call in the Street events in the Central Precinct.
