Accepting the packages is Suzie Gunn, B.S.N., R.N., manager of Maternal Child Health.

The students of Midland Christian School held fundraisers from a $5 dollar jean day to a coin jar contest amongst the grades. With money raised the students visited local stores to purchase items that included stuffed animals, warm, fuzzy socks with grips on the bottom, personal care items, crossword puzzles and playing cards amongst other gifts. The items are being distributed to children in pediatrics and other adult patients throughout the Medical Center.
