Mother and daughter look to help hospice patients
CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa. (WJAC) —
A mother and daughter are working together to help people in hospice care.
They’ve created boxes filled with essentials that will soon be distributed to hundreds of people who need them in Cambria County.
Theresa Adams, a volunteer coordinator for Conemaugh Regional Hospice, sees patients in need of things like toothpaste and deodorant.
Adams decided to create “Buba Boxes” in honor of her grandmother.
With the help of her daughter Tasha, the two applied for a grant to fund the project.
They received enough grant money from the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies to fill 275 boxes.
Volunteers met Wednesday to fill the boxes, which will go to Conemaugh Regional Hospice on Nov. 27.
The Buba Boxes will then be given to assigned patients the same day.
Conemaugh Regional Hospice told 6 News it is thankful for the grant and for the volunteers giving their time, calling the boxes “such an important gift.”
