As a way to assist children who are patients at Inova Loudoun Hospital in Leesburg, the Junior Woman’s Club of Loudoun (JWCL) has donated a second mobile playroom.
JWCL donated the first playroom, a mobile unit on wheels wiith toys and activities, in 2018 and has been saving funds over the past few years to purchase this second playroom.
“Playing allows a child to escape from their reality, to be anyone they want and to go anywhere they want to go, even if it is for a moment,” said Francesca Jacobini, former JWCL President, in a prepared statement. “We are so happy and grateful that JWCL has the opportunity to provide these moments of play for the pediatric patients at Inova Loudoun.”
“We are grateful for the continued support and wonderful contribution that the Junior Woman’s Club of Loudoun is making to enhance a child’s time in the hospital,” said Emily Phipps, child life specialist at Inova Loudoun Hospital, in a prepared statement.
The mobile playroom is being purchased from The Oscar Litwak Foundation. The Foundation’s goal is to improve the quality of life of sick children while hospitalized by providing entertainment and resources for them to enjoy in their room.
