Special Gifts from Brenner

Brenner Children’s Hospital has two great ways to support area children and spread holiday cheer. The 2014 holiday card is a holiday poinsettia painted by John Furches. The “Holiday Poinsettia” set includes 10 cards/envelopes to a pack for $10. The inside message: Wishing you all the Joys of the Holiday Season. You can pair this lovely card with the “Winston-Salem from A to Z”. The book , a beautiful and fun keepsake for all ages, is an original story that incorporates the city’s historical figures, landmarks and characteristics—one item for each letter of the alphabet. The book’s colorful illustrations were created by Brenner Children’s Hospital patients, and the book’s author is a local student.
