December is the time of year when giving to organizations and charities becomes a more prevalent topic of conversation. It’s on the television, in the mail and for some, even in our hearts. Donating is important. While it is a benefit to the recipient, it can also be deeply rewarding to the giver too! There’s just something about giving to others that makes a person happy!
This year, Wyalusing’s Pivot Physical Therapy staff held a pajama drive for the children enrolled in the Wyalusing Head Start classroom of Bradford-Tioga Head Start, Inc. The Pivot staff chose pajamas and blankets because they wanted to the children to have something that would be useful. The drive also collected coloring books and crayons so the children would have something fun to do.
On Dec. 18, Wyalusing Pivot Physical Therapy staff members Heather, Megan, Barry, LaDonna, Kim and Kristen visited the classroom to bring the gifts. Each child received a brand-new pair of pajamas, a blanket, a coloring book and a box of crayons.
The smiling faces of the 13 children in school that day, truly say it all.
