Fairmont, West Virginia, Rotary Club donates 50 Jared Boxes to WVU Children’s Hospital

Published on July 15, 2021, on WVUNews.com

For the second time since the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the Fairmont Rotary Club has donated 50 Jared Boxes to WVU Medicine Children’s Hospital.

Fairmont Rotary Club project manager Tina Shaw said she’s happy that the club has been able to participate in the project for the second year in a row now.

“These kids are there and they don’t have anything to do,” Shaw said. “They’re bored. … A lot of nonprofit organizations support (the project). A friend of mine lives in South Carolina, and her rotary club did it. I connected with her and found out that the woman who manages the whole project was a sorority sister of hers at WVU. She’s from West Virginia. We got connected that way, and I saw what a wonderful service project it was and what it meant to the kids.”
