>February, 2019: The Foundation partnered with the Ward family in Ohio, whose sweet 4 year old, Hallie, is battling leukemia. Instead of a birthday party this year, Hallie wanted to do a PJ drive for Akron Children’s Hospital. Together with their community, they raised over 480 pairs of PJ’s for the kiddos at Akron & we were happy to match a sock donation. This story & this incredible family were featured in this article on CantonRep.com.
