State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota took part in a charitable holiday event aimed at benefiting sick children on Dec. 21.
A team from the college, along with Maverick the Manatee, the school's mascot, and President Dr. Carol Probstfeld, visited two hospitals: Sarasota Memorial Hospital and Manatee Memorial Hospital, specifically the pediatric units at the hospitals, according to a news release.
Maverick spent time with the children in the hospitals and also took pictures with staff members, while Probstfeld delivered a gift basket to the hospital as a way of including employees in the season of giving.
SCF alumni, including recent graduates, who work at the hospitals were able to take part in the festivities as well. The hospitals have been partners with the college's nurses who are on their way to graduation.
