NW Christian delivers pillows to children’s hospital

Students in Northwest Christian’s Home Living class delivered “PICC Pal” pillows to children at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital on Dec. 2.

The pillows, which are placed between the child’s skin and their peripherally inserted central catheter line, are shaped like different animals and objects and come in multiple colors.

This project helps Northwest Christian students connect with people in the community, and the class plans to work on similar projects in the future.
