A group of Erie County high school students have provided smiles to several families dealing with sick loved ones.

Seneca High School students on Thursday delivered comfort baskets to 20 families in the ICU at AHN Saint Vincent.

The baskets were the project of social studies students for the 20 Time project. The students worked on it 20 percent of the time in class, getting to this point.

They raised more than $3,000 to create baskets filled with games, snacks, and other comfort items then brought them to the hospital.

"We think it's really important in giving back to the community," said Olivia Bloeser, junior at Seneca High School. "We thought this was a perfect way to do it. We love how one of our school projects lets us do this type of thing."

"The families will be very appreciative of the time that they spend sitting waiting," said Jean Lindenberger, ICU nurse manager. "These gifts will help them make it an easier time."

The ICU at AHN Saint Vincent was chosen as the recipient for the comfort baskets because the parent of one of the students works there.
