Starting in January 2015, Fit For Play will kick off a year long Jared Box Project initiative to support Mount Nittany Health’s youngest patients. The Jared Box project was started in 2001 by the children at 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 us all. A Jared Box is a shoebox sized plastic storage box filled with small gifts, toy, cars, and games. Boxes are given to chronically ill children with the goal of lifting their spirits during their hospital stay. The next time you're in the office, ask Barb about her personal experience with the Jared Box Project and how a box made a difference in her life. Our first collection will be held January 5th - 29th.

Suggestions for donation  Please drop off all donations at Fit For Play.
