FORT MYERS, Fla. - Golisano Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida's Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care (PPEC) unit enjoyed a special Winter Festival Friday.

Santa dropped by to hand out donated gifts from the HealthPark Care & Rehabilitation Center staff, Hadinger's Carpet and the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority.

This year, Whispering Pines Clydesdales once again treated parents and children to horse-drawn carriage rides.

The PPEC unit is a place for children who require ongoing care and therapy services during the day.

The unit is always accepting donations of all kinds. For more on how to help, contact the PPEC at (239) 343-6590.
