Prior to the holidays, the Graduate Student Organization (GSO) solicited donations of toys, games, and other kid-related items from the Biomedical Sciences (BMS) family. This yearly event, “The Jared Box Project” is a nation-wide mission to improve the lives of hospitalized children by providing opportunities to play. Once the offerings were collected, the GSO wrapped and delivered the gifts to children, from newborn to 18 years old, at Cabell-Huntington Hospital.
This year’s delivery team included Rachel Murphy, PhD Candidate and GSO President; Rabia Ahmed (Taha’s sister); Taha Ahmed, PhD Candidate; Debbie Amos, PhD student and GSO Vice President; and Kristeena Wright, PhD Candidate.
It is hard to say who had a better time, those getting the gifts or those who were able to share them!
Ms. Murphy extended a “big THANK YOU” to everyone who donated toys or cash to this great project.”
