Kids helping kids at St. Joseph Hospital

Students from Lafayette Elementary School’s afterschool program stopped by St. Joseph Hospital recently to deliver handmade blankets to young patients and to take a tour of the hospital. The students spent weeks making the blankets, each of which featured a different pattern, including butterflies, flowers, turtles, puppies, camouflage and more. The blankets were donated to the hospital’s pediatrics department, where children receive medical care, and each came with a personalized card for the recipient.
