Since 2013, Soho has donated over 200,000 quality children's books to UVa Hospital for sick children and their siblings. When we 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






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.
