The theme for this project is:

Healthcare, Medicine, Children

If you have ever been a patient at the hospital, you know how scary and uncomfortable it can be. Our nurses would like a collection of gift bags which could include books, coloring books, crayons and small stuffed animals that they can give to children to comfort them during their time in the emergency room or inpatient. Students will help choose their favorite books and select coloring books and crayons and small stuffed animals that will be given to our young patients to take home with them.

Students are invited to deliver their bags and get a tour of the Hospital to discover how their generosity helps patients.
