Patients aren't always the only ones who need to be treated during a hospital stay...
Kids of parents who are in the hospital can sometimes find themselves in a confusing situation -- and today Gate City was working to help those kids.
300 stuffed animals have been donated here to the Trinity Guest House -- a spot many families stay during a hospital stay of a loved-one.
The kids are paired up with a toy to keep during the stay...and take home too.
It was happening this morning in fact.
Jodi Smith with the Trinity Health Foundation says partnering with companies like Gate City can lead to projects that can make a big difference.
(Jodi Smith - Trinity Health Foundation Director) "When they come and they are scared or they are nervous, Judy gets to go in the back and get a stuffed animal and she gets all the hugs for it!"
The stuffed animals aren't just used for kids there at the Guest House - but also in home hospice care situations.
Alzheimer's patients also are often given a stuffed animal as well.
