Spread the Love


Spread the love for Nationwide Children’s Hospital! With over 800 in attendance at the Ohio Association of Advanced Practice Nurses Statewide Conference each year, APRNs have a huge opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of children in 2019.

Last year we asked conference attendees to bring donations for patients in two hospital systems. This year, we are asking attendees to focus their efforts on one hospital system, but one with a number of needs. Please consider bringing one or more items from the suggested list below.

Whether you are packing for a few nights in the hotel or a backpack for one day’s attendance, please remember to pack something for someone in need. Imagine the lives we could touch this holiday season!

Items needed:

  • Infants & Toddlers — Board Books, rattles, teethers, and textured blocks/balls
  • Preschoolers & School Age — Crayons and coloring books, Play-Doh, Popup Books, wooden puzzles, Lego sets and Matchbox cars
  • Teenagers — Games (checkers or trivia games), playing cards, teen reading books, word search/Mad-Libs and Teen DVDs
