More Than a Thousand Pillows!
We have been making and stuffing pillows to be given to children who are taken to the hospital. This is a traumatic time for any child, and PBQ members are happy to offer some comfort with these pillows. Recently we were notified by Joan Stevens, Coordinator of Volunteer and Guest Services at Forrest General, that since June of 2009 FGH had received 1,150 pillows. These are given to children in the ER and on the pediatric unit. In addition to the pillows placed at FGH, we have also supplied Wesley Medical Center with pillows but do not have an accurate count.
