Review for Alleghenies Unlimited Care Providers, Johnstown, PA, USA
My name is Teresa Adams and I am the Volunteer Coordinator for Conemaugh Regional Hospice. Years ago, I had an idea of creating a 'Buba Box' for our Hospice Patients. The box would be named after my Grandmother, my Buba, and would be given out to those in need as she had always had a giving kind heart throughout her life. These boxes would contain much needed items that our Hospice Patients are unfortunately unable to shop for such as, lotion, tissues, pens, notebooks, books, toothpaste, mouthwash, soap, etc. So in early September 2018, Tasha Adams, Alleghenies Unlimited Care Providers Marketer, received a grant for this project. A.U.C.P. was able to purchase the items and the boxes as well. The Consumers of A.U.C.P. assembled the boxes along with adding their kindness and caring attention to each one. In November 2018, Conemaugh Regional Hospice picked up the boxes from A.U.C.P. and then distributed a box to each one of our Hospice Patients. The Patients were so excited and so deeply grateful to receive such a gift. Besides adding a note of caring in each box, the Consumers also added a small stuffed Teddy Bear. Upon opening the box, each Patient's first reaction was to hug their new bear! It was such a warm touching sight to witness. This was such a wonderful and rewarding co-joined project between Alleghenies Unlimited Care Providers and Conemaugh Regional Hospice and I along with our Hospice Patients will always be eternally grateful for their role in this endeavor.
