"The work being done at the Children's National Medical Center, and children's hospitals across the country, is so incredibly important, and it is an honor to be able to help them out in any way," said Schneider. "There are countless little things we can do to give back to our communities every single day--not just on National Service Days--and being able to share my love of reading with kids is truly one of the most rewarding."
The National Day of Service was created to honor the life of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by serving others in the community through a range of community service projects.
Children's National Medical Center is the only exclusive pediatric-care facility in the D.C. area and sees more than 360,000 patients every year, providing more than $50 million in uncompensated care.
