Taken by Riteaid during the plant sale. Raising an estimated $10,000 with this plant sale is such a beautiful thing and the ways the money is used benefits everyone who enters Doernbecher's Children Hospital. I have personal experience and know firsthand the caring and love Doernbecher and the people who work there put into their jobs. They make sure patients and families come first and do everything within their power to save the lives of these children.
