Book this: Honor MOM this Mother’s Day by donating books for HCMC newborns

by Hennepin Healthcare

Mother’s Day is getting closer — have you remembered that special gift for your mom? How about your wife? This year HCMC is making it easy to give a gift that will last much longer than flowers or candy. A $30 donation supports HCMC’s Books for Babies program for one day, making sure every baby in our nursery receives his or her first book. Special cards have been created so you can offer your donation as a gift for Mother’s Day or another special occasion.

You can purchase the gifts online at or buy them at HCMC’s Gift Shop.

Books for Babies is a project of HCMC’s Children’s Literacy Program supported by donations and grants through the Hennepin Health Foundation. For more information, call 612-873-8954.
