Marian Presents For Pediatrics
The eleventh annual Marian University School of Nursing and Health Professions’ Presents for Pediatrics campaign collected more than 500 gifts for children in Wisconsin Hospitals. Each holiday season, Marian University Student Nurses Association collects toys, DVD’s, books, games, activity sets and other gifts and delivers them to St. Agnes Hospital in Fond du Lac and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and Neenah. The gifts, either donated or purchased through monetary donations, were given to the hospitals’ pediatric units. “This project is both an enjoyable and rewarding experience,” said Nancy Noble, associate professor and co-advisor of the association. 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.” Presents for Pediatrics focuses on children who are suffering from an acute or chronic illness during the holidays.
