The Cole Foundation and UPMC Cole would like to thank Rotary District 7360 for their recent donation of Jared Boxes. The Jared Box Project was started in 2001 by the children of Our Lady of Victory School in State College, PA to honor their classmate and friend, Jared. He was a brave little boy who battled cancer with courage and faith that continues to inspire.
Jared Boxes are filled with the "gift of play" and are given to patients in emergency rooms, hospital rooms, surgical units, and clinics. Each box contains small gifts, toys, games, crayons, coloring books, and fun activities to entertain and put a smile on the faces of children in the hospital.
UPMC Cole was given 45 boxes to distribute in the emergency room, pediatric offices, and the short procedure unit. Thank you to the many members of Rotary for thinking of UPMC Cole and our little patients.
