Earlier this year, Minnesauke Elementary School’s and P.J. Gelinas Junior High School’s National Junior Art Honor Societies collaborated to create 24 artistically painted lily pad shaped platforms for the bottoms of IV stands and recently donated the creations to Stony Brook Children’s Hospital.

The heavy-duty wooden bases aim to provide long-term pediatric patients with a fun surface to sit and ride upon while walking through the hospital hallways; providing an alternative to traditional wheelchairs. The group is pictured here with the final products when they gifted them to the hospital.
