A mother-daughter duo are giving back to the community through care packages for hospice patients called "Buba Boxes."

All of it as a tribute to a grandmother.

Teresa and Tasha Adams – the creators of “the Buba Box project” are looking to make a difference in their community one box at a time.

Wednesday was a rewarding day for those who spearheaded the project.

Teresa Adams, a volunteer coordinator for Conemaugh Regional Hospice, said the project is personal for her because she sees patients who aren’t able to go purchase the items they need and saw that firsthand with her own grandmother -- ”Buba.”

Teresa teamed up with her daughter, Tasha, to get a grant from the community foundation for Alleghenies and started the “Buba Box Project.”

Volunteers filled the boxes with hygiene products, toys and other essentials.

The boxes will be delivered Thursday and Friday.

"It's amazing to see that not only is it going to impact hospice patients, something so small as this, but it's also impacting our participants here in our activity program,” Tasha said.

"Just to touch one person or to make a difference in one person's life ... it means the world," said Teresa.

Teresa said her grandmother was someone who loved to help others and would be proud of the work they’ve done, continuing a legacy of helping others.
