fter hearing about 10 year old cancer patient Trevor Sims' wish to feed the hungry, Patient Care Technician students at BRCC New Roads stepped up to help make his wish come true. They moved quickly to organize a food drive for Trevor. The students, along with their instructor Debra Bailey, put on their running shoes and delivered flyers throughout the local community requesting donations of canned goods . Once the flyers were out, the donations began flowing in. "Trevor's story just touched the hearts of many the students and I wanted to help in any way we could. That's what we do as healthcare workers" said Mrs. Bailey. The goods were delivered to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank as per Trevor's wish.
