TRUSSVILLE — An 8-year-old Birmingham girl is trying to help patients at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Jordyn organized a book and toy drive, with a goal of collecting 2,000 books and toys.
The book and toy drive started last week. Donations can be dropped off at any Books-A-Million in the Birmingham area.
The drive wraps up Saturday, April 5 from noon to 4 p.m. at the Books-A-Million on U.S. Highway 11 in Trussville. There will be door prizes, a coloring contest, sing-a-longs, story time, face painting and get-well cards made for the children at St. Jude.
When she was 6, Jordyn started Faith Like a Child, Inc., which aims to do “love projects” and help families going through hard times by giving them something to look forward to. Jordyn’s first “love project” was raising enough money to send a young cancer patient and her family to Walt Disney World.
