They know how important it is to read to them as they grow.
Led in part by Elena Kamel, MD, an associate professor of clinical obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, staff at Prentice recently contributed children’s books to Real Men Read, a project started by Pastor Michael Neal of the Glorious Light Church in Bronzeville.
The total donation exceeded 2,000 books. It was collected not only by Prentice staff but also by Kamel’s son, Aaron, who met Pastor Neal in 2013; Walter Payton High School students and staff; Anshe Emet Synagogue members; the Women’s Group of Northwestern physicians, staff and patients; and tenants at 737 N. Michigan Ave., among others.
“What a glorious morning with Pastor Neal and the members of the Glorious Light Church,” Dr. Kamel said following the donation on Sunday, Oct. 27. “With the sun shining this morning there were plenty of rays of sunshine and hope that together we can make a better world.”
