Kate Hentschel & Change for Children

Miss Kate Hentschel was our guest speaker at our October 21st meeting. Ms. Hentschel is a senior at Hatboro-Horsham High School.

After spending several weeks as a patient in Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia last year, Kate realized how little there is to keep youngsters occupied while they are patients in the hospital.

She decided to start a fundraiser she calls “Change for Children”. The goal is to bring new books, magazines, DVDs, CDs, video games, and a computer for hospitalized teens to use at CHoP. This is her second year conducting this service.

The Horsham Lions so liked this idea and Ms. Hentschel’s determination and drive, that we voted to donate $200 to the young lady. The seeds of lifelong community service are evident in Ms. Hentschel. Her story was featured in the a Philly.com article, and is also recognized by CHoP.

If you’d like to help by donating NEW items such as those listed above, or to donate money toward her goal, contact Ms. Hentschel at KateHentschel@verizon.net
