Long Beach Job Corps Students Use Creative Talent to Cheer Up Miller Children’s Hospital Patients

October 28th, 2011

On Friday, October 21, 2011, 3 classes of Long Beach Job Corps students assembled together in one big room and used their creativity to cheer up local children who are patients at Miller Children’s Hospital. The students strategically chose colorful beads and strung them together to assemble beautiful bracelets.   Then they took the bracelets apart and placed the contents in bags, so the children who received them could “recreate” their own bracelets.  

When asked how the students could help the young patients, staff at the Child Life Center immediately recommended doing the beading project. The activity was one of several projects that Long Beach Job Corps Corps students participated in as part of Make a Difference Day.  

The staff at the Child Life Center at Miller Children’s Hospital in Long  Beach, California  is appreciative of  the donation that will keep their young patients minds on creativity and off  being in the hospital.
