Ministers’ group donates to elementary schools

Hundreds of Eastern Henrico elementary school students – many of whom don’t have books of their own at home – soon will have new reading materials, thanks to the generosity of a number of local churches.

The Henrico Ministers Conference, which counts nearly 50 members from churches throughout the county, collected about 1,200 books and recently donated them in equal quantities to the PTAs at Glen Lea, Montrose and Ratcliffe elementaries, which will distribute them to students at the schools.

Give blood and help save lives this spring


Eligible blood donors of all blood types are encouraged to give blood through the American Red Cross this spring to help ensure a sufficient supply for hospital patients. Donated blood is perishable and must constantly be replenished to keep up with hospital patient need. Red blood cells are the blood component most frequently transfused by hospitals and must be used within 42 days of donation.

While donors of all blood types are encouraged to give blood, type O, A negative and B negative donors are urged to give Power Reds if they meet the additional eligibility criteria. Type O negative is the universal blood type and can be transfused to patients of any blood type in an emergency.

A special touch

Children’s Theatre offers sensory-friendly shows

On a Saturday afternoon in August, Becky Ricker, a mother from Cumberland County, loaded her car with her 12-year-old daughter Hailey, Hailey’s best friend and her teacher and drove 50 miles to Henrico County for a performance of “The Golden Goose” at Virginia Repertory’s Children’s Theatre at Willow Lawn.

Hailey has a chromosome disorder that renders her nonverbal with difficulty walking, but for Ricker, the long drive would be worth the trip.
