  • NA TIGER'S JARED BOX PROJECT TEAM CREATES 331 BOXES FOR YOUNG LOCAL HOSPITAL PATIENTS

    Posted by NASD Communications on 5/6/2024

    The Jared Box Project was a project started in State College, Pennsylvania to honor a young cancer patient, Jared. While receiving cancer treatments, Jared would bring a box of toys to share with other children. Unfortunately, Jared lost his battle, but the Jared Box Project was created in his memory. A Jared Box is filled with toys and activities to lift the spirits of young patients in hospitals.

    In 2021, Julia and Evan O'Keefe started a Tiger's Jared Box Project at North Allegheny to support the cause. Donations are collected from students at NASH and NAI. Then, boxes are assembled and hand-delivered to local hospitals. The project has grown each year substantially. This year, freshmen Fischer Modic and Sidney Rice, have joined the Tiger's Jared Box Project team, sponsored by Ms. Lynch. Marking its most successful year yet, 331 Jared Boxes were created, leading to a three-year total of 611 boxes. These boxes will be taken to children in local hospitals, to put a smile on their faces when they need it most.
