Barnes & Noble Holiday Book Drive and Parade!

October 21, 2013 by School of Medicine Webmaster

book driveAs part of our partnership with Barnes and Noble, the UVA Children’s Hospital has the opportunity to be the beneficiary of their holiday book drive and are also eligible to receive a portion of all book fair sales during the holiday season. We also have the opportunity to share a float in the Barracks Road Holiday Parade. The parade will take place on Friday, November 29 (Black Friday) at 9:30 in the Barracks Road Shopping Center. We would like to see faculty and their families participate in this fun event!

Our vision is to have some people riding on the float listening to a storybook character read or singing Christmas carols while others walk alongside the float handing out items to people watching. We envision needing about 10  to 20 faculty members and their families to make this truly successful. This will be a great opportunity to build awareness and perception of UVA Children’s Hospital as well as showcase our passionate, caring doctors. Interested faculty should email Tucker Petty ( or Angela Taylor ( by November 15. Questions should also be directed to Tucker and Angela.
