Nurses at SwedishAmerican’s Heart Hospital spent #GivingTuesday making dozens of blankets and handing them out to their patients.
‘Giving Tuesday’ refers to the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, which has been designated as an international day of charitable giving.
“It’s not easy to be in the hospital over the holidays,” said nurse Sara Christiansen-Caiozzo. “Being in the health field, you do that because you want to help patients and you want to help people, and this is one way for us to help them feel a little bit better.”
This is the second year the nurses at the heart hospital have made the blankets.
