To help sick children feel a little better while they wait to be seen in a local pediatrician’s office, Chance and Tessa DeAndrea are raising money and supplies to supply Dr. Robert Childs' office with a flat screen television, DVD player, Xbox One, gently used Xbox games, and children's movies on DVD.

Chance and Tessa are hoping our community will assist in this project by either providing a monetary donation or a donation of gently used Xbox games and/or children's DVDs.

Monetary, game, and movie donations can be delivered to the dojo or by calling (570) 233-1069 for pick up.
