MU 'Presents for Pediatrics' collects over 900 gifts for hospitalized children

The 10th annual "Presents for Pediatrics" campaign has collected more than 900 gifts for children in Wisconsin hospitals.

Each holiday season, Marian University Student Nurses Association collect toys, DVD's, books, games, activity sets and other requested gifts and deliver them to St. Agnes Hospital in Fond du Lac; and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and Neenah. The gifts, which are either donated gifts or purchases through monetary donations, were donated to the hospitals' pediatric units.

Presents for Pediatrics focuses on children who are suffering from an acute or chronic illness during the holidays. The children are separated from friends and family and are in a new and often frightening environment. The Presents for Pediatrics project seeks to be a positive distraction from hospital life for the patients and families. Even the littlest gift - a board game, an art kit, or a stuffed bunny can bring smiles to faces that are often in the midst of major life challenges.

"This project is both an enjoyable and rewarding experience," states Nancy Noble, associate professor and co-advisor of MUSNA. "The nursing students are able to experience and see the positive impact this project has on the children and their families. The donations from students, faculty and friends of Marian will help to make the holidays a little brighter for children who will be spending time in the hospital,"
