CAMP HILL, Pa. --  Patients at Janet Weis Children's Hospital at Holy Spirit in Cumberland County are feeling the warmth of the holidays, thanks to one generous teenager and her family.

13-year-old Tyler Hollister and her mother created a charity last year, called Stitches and Stockings.  Together, they create Christmas stockings, then stuff them with gifts and donate everything to pediatric patients at the hospital.

"We went with it last year," Tyler said.  "We just thought of how happy people would get and I just want to bring joy to them."

This year, Tyler was able to collect blankets and chargers for phones and other electronic devices, in addition to the requested toys.
