Cincinnati Children's Hospital employees honor Dr. King

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati Children's Hospital employees participated in outreach projects in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday.

"Our folks are so amazing here at Cincinnati Children's. They're constantly giving back to our community in a medical sense, but what this also does is allows them an opportunity to bring their families and get their families involved in the service they do every day," said James Page from Cincinnati Children's Hospital.

20 volunteers assisted with painting and beautification of the VISIONS Project, which serves young parents and their children. Other employees helped at Bethany House Services, which provides housing for low income families. The remainder of the volunteers stayed on site at Cincinnati Children's Sabin Auditorium to help build developments toys from common household supplies for Every Child Succeeds.
