                   Book Drive for Austin Children’s Hospital
         Hi friends!

         My name is Kim Silva. I live here in Round Rock Ranch on Sundrop Place. Last Spring, I had a
         book drive on my street to collect books for the Children’s Hospital of Austin. The children there
         are allowed to choose books to keep, and I am told that they go through a 1000 books a month!
         They are always in need of more books. A simple book can do so much for a sick child; it can put
         a smile on their face, help them escape from everyday reality and even educate them.

         So I am inspired again to ask for your donations for the hospital. I will be leaving a box on my
         front porch marked “Austin’s Children’s Hospital” and you can leave your books there. They can
         be new or gently used. I will leave the box out for a month and then take the books to the hospi-
         tal on behalf of Round Rock Ranch.

         If you have any questions, you can call me at 733-9705. My address is 1134 Sundrop Place (in
         the new Milburn section). You can also call Peggy Bud at the Children’s Hospital (324-8678) if
         you want to take your donations yourself or find other ways of helping.

                                                                                                                             Page 5
