TMC, TOI Staff Donate First 500 Books to TMC for Children’s Reach Out and Read Initiative

Tucson Medical Center and Tucson Orthopaedic Institute staff members were recently responsible for donating over 500 children’s books for young patients at TMC for Children. In support of the effort to prepare and encourage young children to read, these books as well as many more, will be handed out to patients in the coming months.

The donation effort was tied into the Topping Out Ceremony held last week at TMC celebrating the completion of the steel framework for the new West Pavilion. In the weeks before the ceremony, the topping out beam was passed through the halls and offices of TMC and Tucson Orthopaedic Institute. Staff members of both places were given the opportunity to sign the commemorative beam and in doing so, became a part of TMC history. In exchange for the opportunity, the signees each donated a children’s book.
