Some local high school students helped spread holiday cheer to patients at the Iowa Health Hospice’s Taylor House Sunday.

18 hospice volunteers hung lights and helped decorate the Taylor House inside and out.

It’s in preparation for the annual tree lighting ceremony.

Therapy dogs also visited the hospice house helping to provide comfort to patients and families during the most difficult of times.

“Having the kids here and the dogs brightens everyone’s spirits. It’s good for the patients, it’s good for the families, and it’s good for the kids too,” said Susie Flood, from the Iowa Health Hospice.

The teen hospice program has been active for three years.

The tree lighting ceremony is scheduled for November 29th.
