Local High School, Teacher Give Back to Saint Francis Level III NICU
Brandie Maddox, a 10th-grade teacher at Sikeston High School, and her students donated short- and long-term items for families with infants in Saint Francis Medical Center’s Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
The gifts included toiletries, 20 handmade blankets, infant socks, snacks and other items useful to Level III NICU families. Maddox’s son, Mason, was a patient in the Level III NICU, and she and her students wanted to help other families in the same situation. Maddox says the students started working on the gifts in November, spending one day a week on them. In December, they worked two days a week at school and some even worked on the blankets at home. Total value of the donation was more than $500.
