In memory of their daughter, Vivian Grace, members of the Castaneda Family, of Glen Rock, NJ, recently held a book drive and collected 330 books for the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital at Hackensack Meridian Health Hackensack University Medical Center. The books, which were collected during the family’s third annual book drive, were recently delivered to the children’s hospital and will be distributed to patients to enjoy while in the hospital and to take home with them to keep.
“In honor of Vivian’s love, we would like to commemorate her by continuing the act of giving love to all the children who maybe going through the same difficult times as she did,” said Mary Grace Castaneda, Vivian’s mother. “The joy, happiness and warmth that these children experience when receiving small gifts is priceless in itself. May these books bring smiles and happiness to each child. And, in this way, Vivian’s love can continue to spread to the hearts of all children.”
