February 23, 2015– Centre LifeLink EMS has partnered with the local organization The Jared Box Project, and will transport boxes filled with toys and games for select age ranges to chronically ill or injured children in hospitals across Pennsylvania.
The Jared Box Project began in memory of a 5 year old boy named Jared who battled cancer. His classmates at Our Lady of Victory honored their friend and classmate Jared, by starting this project. A shoebox size plastic storage box filled with small gifts, toys, cards, and games. Jared Boxes provide a special diversion for young patients as they receive chemotherapy and other medical treatments.
Centre LifeLink is very proud to partner with such a special project and will have boxes on hand to present to injured or ill children in the ambulance during transport. For more information, or to learn how you can help, please visit http://www.thejaredbox.com
