Miss Teen World visits children at Maynard Children's Hospital

November 25, 2019 posted by Vidant Health News

The James and Connie Maynard Children's Hospital hosted a pair of teen queens in November to bring in holiday activities for patients in the hospital.

Miss Teen World of Pitt County Ellie Osborne and Miss Teen World America Maddy Walker visited with pediatric patients and played bingo for prizes. While playing, they picked out puzzles, toys and books as prizes. The event helped bring joy to children in the hospital during the holiday season.

Osborne was happy to spend time with the children in her hometown hospital and show support for Vidant.

"It's just cool to think that though these kids can't be home for the holidays, there's still something that I can do to help them be happy and cheerful," Osborne said, "which is what the holiday season is all about."

The Maynard Children's Hospital hosts numerous events throughout the holiday season to spread the holiday spirit.
