Uplift Loudoun

The Junior Woman’s Club of Loudoun (JWCL) donated a second mobile playroom to Inova Loudoun Hospital. JWCL donated the first playroom, a mobile unit on wheels which is fully stocked with toys and activities in 2018. The organization has been saving funds over the past couple 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. We are so happy and grateful that JWCL has the opportunity to provide these moments of play for the pediatric patients at Inova Loudoun,” JWCL past president Francesca Jacobini said.

The mobile playroom is a product of the Oscar Litwak Foundation. The foundation’s goal is to improve the quality of life of sick children during their hospitalization stay. This is done by providing familiar entertainment and resources for them to enjoy in their room. It’s named after Oscar who died of kidney cancer a month after his fourth birthday at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) in California

“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,” stated Emily Phipps, Child Life Specialist, Inova Loudoun Hospital.
