A Plant City fourth-grader is spreading joy at St. Joseph's Women's Hospital.
Azaria Santos, 10, delivered 60 baskets to the parents of premature babies in the NICU. Santos spent months putting the baskets together as a way to comfort the babies through what can be a trying time.
"I'm doing this because I was a preemie and I wanted to make the preemies happy," Santos said.
Santos, who attends Burney Elementary School, has formed her own charity called Azaria's Hope. She accepts donations and sells T-shirts to raise money for the baskets she delivers.
Parent Natalie Copeland said she appreciated the gesture.
"It's touching," she said. "You don't see this everyday."
Alice Bullard owns OnPoint IT Solutions in Plant City. She donated some of the items in the basket after hearing the story.
"I think she's an amazing young lady," Bullard said. "I mean, she has so much energy and she wants to do so much great things at such a young age and you just don't see that these days so it really, really spoke us."
