Charity group donates Jared’s boxes to Madison County General Hospital
They gave 13 Jared’s boxes to the pediatrics wing filled with stuffed animals, colored pencils and books.
Beth Bates, Jackson-Madison chapter regent, got the idea for the Jared’s boxes after one of their member’s children was hospitalized last year.
“I already have a warm feeling in my heart that we are doing something, we’re taking action to help others,” Bates said.
The Jackson-Madison chapter of the DAR was founded in 1901 and now has 140 members.
