Barbee accepted handmade pillows the members had made for children who come to the hospital for treatment.


The Woman’s Missionary Union at Wendell Baptist Church recently donated almost 100 handmade pillowcases to WakeMed Children’s Hospital, according to hospital spokeswoman, Kristin Kelly Gruman.

The women who made the colorful pillowcases are part of WMU’s “Project Pillie.”

Their goal is to bring comfort and cheer to children who are patients at WakeMed.

Gruman says a trip to the hospital or emergency room is never easy for a child, and WakeMed is committed to keeping kids comfortable during what is a tough experience for them and their parents.

“WakeMed is grateful for the continued generosity of supporters like the ‘Pillie’ Project to help keep kids as relaxed and happy as possible,” she said.
