EAGLE SCOUT BRINGS COMFORT TO PEDIATRIC ER PATIENTS

WELLSVILLE, NY – A trip to the ER can be a scary experience for a youngster – whether they come as a patient or with a close family member who needs care. The Blanket, Book, and Buddy Bundle may be just what the doctor ordered!
Eagle Scout candidate Lance Weaver of Boy Scout Troop 708 and Amy Bump of Cuba Memorial Hospital worked together on a Leadership Allegany Service Project that will bring comfort to pediatric patients who to come to the ERs at Jones and Cuba Memorial and other local medical facilities.
In photo above, Lance, a tenth grade student at Cuba-Rushford High School, recently delivered 106 Blanket, Book, and Buddy bundles to Jones Memorial. Laura Babcock, RN, Emergency Department Nurse at Jones, left, and Mona Carbone, Nurse Manager of the ER gratefully accepted the generous gift and thanked Lance. The bundles will be given to children who come to the emergency room. What a wonderful gift!
