Thanks to a donation from the Callaway Community Hospital Auxiliary, children 3 and under who need chest X-rays at CCH will now have an easier time of it.

Each year the auxiliary chooses items to donate from a wish list created by the hospital's department heads. This year, a child immobilization device, security cameras and some handbooks were chosen from the list, making the total cost of donated materials almost $7,000.
