Monona Junior Feeders.jpg

Partners of Partners of Crossing Rivers Health recently donated $500 to the Monona Jr. Feeders 4-H Club, which the group used to make no-sew fleece blankets. The completed blankets were donated to the Crossing Rivers Health Emergency Department for pediatric ED patients. Giving a trauma patient a soft blanket helps children relax and eases their fear and pain, while in the ED. One mom called it a “life saver”.
