Children’s Hospital among organizations benefiting from Heritage Toyota Harrisburg’s ‘Day of Giving’ campaign
Heritage Toyota Harrisburg presented Penn State Health Children’s Hospital with nearly $20,000 as part of the dealership’s “Day of Giving” campaign. The money will benefit Four Diamonds and the hospital’s Pediatric Trauma and Injury Prevention Program.
A $10,000 grant will provide hope to children and families fighting childhood cancer by supporting Four Diamonds Mini-THON® programs at 10 schools. Mini-THON is a K-12 program empowering students to be leaders in the fight to conquer childhood cancer. Students gain work-ready skills in communication, critical thinking and problem solving, while promoting teamwork, creativity and spirit within their schools. Dauphin County Technical School student Anahi Medina-Rosado and teacher Dana Saporita accepted the gift on behalf of Four Diamonds at Monday’s event.
Meantime, a $9,500 grant will fund the purchase of adaptive car seats and safety restraints for the hospital’s Pediatric Trauma and Injury Prevention Program for children with special needs and those who have an injury or undergone a surgery that prevents traveling in a conventional car seat. The program hosts about 60 car seat safety check events per year at various locations across central Pennsylvania. Jennifer Kupko and her son Gannon, 8, who was a Children’s Hospital patient, accepted the gift on behalf of the program.
In all, Heritage Toyota Harrisburg donated more than $95,000 to seven organizations across central Pennsylvania.
