Knox Jr. High students create gifts for Littauer’s youngest patients

GLOVERSVILLE – Eighth grade students from Knox Junior High School in Johnstown donated owl hand puppets to Nathan Littauer Hospital & Nursing Home as a gift for pediatric and young emergency room patients.

Close to 60 puppets were created by Linda Rusnica’s Life Studies class while working on their sewing unit. Rusnica presented the puppets to the Littauer Pediatric Unit and to the Littauer Auxiliary. According to Rusnica, the students were thrilled to contribute their time and effort, and it only took them four days.

Susan McNeil, Director of Volunteer Services at Nathan Littauer Hospital & Nursing Home thanked Rusnica and added “I look forward to working with more in the future with Knox students, and we will share these gifts with other departments.”
