Hannah Pfeffer, a senior at Altoona Area High School, recently completed her senior project.

She organized, with the help of generous donations, which she secured, enough money and items to make gift bags for pediatric patients who are admitted to the hospital.

She also made bags for the patients’ siblings as they wait in the room or in the emergency room waiting room.

She made and delivered 125 “gift bags” that were given to UPMC Altoona.

Hannah is the daughter of Doug and Theresa Pfeffer of Altoona.
