Advent Project Benefits Hospitalized Children

Each year since 1996, Holy Ghost Catholic School’s fourth-grade students have earned and collected money as an Advent project to purchase items for the Pediatric Unit playroom at North Oaks Medical Center. The students are instructed by Linda Owens, Kristi Galofaro and Alexis Wallette.

The project was started 23 years ago in memory of former fourth-grade student Jason Tinnerello, according to Owens.

North Oaks Patient Services Secretary Linda Jo Kincaid visited with the students Tuesday, Dec. 10, to personally thank them and explain how the donations will be used to comfort and entertain hospitalized children.
