Upland, Pa – Several weeks ago, a donation was forwarded to the Crozer Regional Cancer Center in Upland. This happens on a regular basis, but sometimes a donation can take on a different meaning either for the amount or the story behind the gift. This particular donation arrived courtesy of the Shiloh Development Academy in Chester in the amount of $55.00. The dollars will certainly help, but the life lessons learned by the children and those that they have touched will have an even greater impact. 

Preschoolers and staff under the direction of Angela Mitchell-Williams, director of the Shiloh Development Academy, made the decision to lead a school project titled, “Little Hands, Big Hearts,” to raise funds for the Crozer Regional Cancer Center.  It was their intention to help in the research and development of finding a cure for Cancer. They created bulletin boards, held classroom discussions, told stories and ultimately were motivated to donate funds, with several students choosing to empty out their coin collections. 

In addition to the fundraising focus, the school incorporated a forward-looking message for the students. Each student that participated in the school project was given a ‘gift of love’ and they were asked to present the gift to a breast cancer survivor or an individual currently receiving treatment.
