Northwest Christian School Visits Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital for Third Year in a Row

High school students at Northwest Christian Schools have been hard at work preparing to make a special delivery for patients at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital.

For the third year in a row, students in the NWCS Home Living Class have made “PICC Pal” pillows for young patients at the children’s hospital. The pillows are meant to go between the patient’s skin and their PICC (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter) line to provide chemo therapy or other long-term treatments.

At the end of November, the Home Living Class taught by Mrs. Lisa Greer travelled to the South Hill to tour the facility and deliver “PICC Pals”. 17  high school students in total were able to join the trip to Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital.
