Since 2013, Soho has donated over 500,000
quality children's books to UVa Hospital
for sick children and their siblings. Each month, about 9,000 books are given away to children.

When Soho's donation to UVA reached 60,000 books, Soho's Book Giveaway was
featured as
the Top Story in UVa's
Connect Online magazine.  To read the whole story, please Click Here

And when we reached 200,000 books, UVA did another wonderful story about our Book Giveaways

Preparing Soho's book donation for UVa Children's Hospital.  The books are given away to children with juvenile diabetes, cancer, heart problems, autism, and other medical conditions.

The book carts are now on multiple floors of UVa's new Battle Building for children and their siblings to select gift books.  Book carts are also in pediatric offices in various locations.
