PRINCETON — The Christ Community Church Mission Pet Club recently donated stuffed animals to Perry Memorial Hospital in Princeton to be given to children who come through PMH’s emergency department as patients or who are admitted as inpatients.

“These stuffed animals will be used to provide comfort to children who have to come to the hospital with the hopes of making their hospital experience less intimidating. We appreciate the generous donation,” said Brenda Streit, PMH marketing director.

The animals were hand sewn by both ladies of the Pet Club, as well as members of the church’s youth. Those interested in being a part of the club should contact the Christ Community Church office at 815-879-3227.
