The MOMS Club of Southern Berks County (formally Robeson Twp) recently participated in the Jared Box Project by successfully filling and delivering 30 boxes of donated items to Hershey Hospital in Hershey.Founded in 2001 in honor of a brave little boy, Jared, who battled cancer, the goal of the Jared Box Project is to lift the spirits of chronically ill children. The boxes symbolize the importance of play and are filled with well wishes, hope, and love. A Jared Box is a shoebox size plastic storage box filled with small gifts, toys, cards, and games. Each box contains items selected for a specific age and gender.

In a group effort, the MOMS Club collected enough donated items to fill more than 30 boxes. During a field trip to Hershey, the children enjoyed pushing the Jared Boxes on a cart through the hospital. The staff was ever so grateful for all of the contributions. The club was even able to donate the bigger items that we could not fit into boxes.

The MOMS Club would like to thank all those who contributed to this worthwhile effort.
