Stepping Stones Preschool


Last fall, a group of children at a Gainesville-area preschool helped the children at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital. Stepping Stones, a preschool at Trinity United Methodist Church in Gainesville, chose the children’s hospital as the beneficiary of the school’s annual fundraiser.

Each of the students brought in spare change and monetary donations along with toys, games and art material for the kids in the hospital. Their toys and donations all supported the Child Life program and allowed them to disperse the items to our patients. Together, they raised more than $600 for the kids!

Thank you to Stepping Stones for your heartfelt generosity!
