    GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- Northeast Wisconsin Technical College nursing students are making a difference for sick children.

    Students were at St. Vincent Hospital giving out bags with gifts to child patients.

    They put together about 65 bags for the kids.

    The donations included hand-made blankets and books.

    Organizers say the items make a big difference to kids going through a tough time.

    "They are so excited, I can't even explain it to you guys because there's just so much, they get such big smiles on their faces," said St. Vincent child life specialist, Amy Hagel. "You know it's just one of these things that we want the experience to be pleasant for them."

    NWTC students have donated hundreds of bags since the books and blankets program started four years ago.
