FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)- Fort Wayne Corvette Club members made a donation on Monday aimed at benefiting Parkview Health pediatric patients.
Among the items they donated were two weighted vests and two weighted blankets to provide comfort and security for children admitted to Parkview Behavioral Health, a log swing for children undergoing pediatric rehabilitation, puzzles and coloring books with crayons, as well as other age-appropriate resources.
“What I really appreciate about the Corvette Club is, I asked them, ‘Will you think outside the box?’ and they said ‘Yes’,” said Stephanny Smith of the Parkview Foundation. “So it was not just providing items to our patients here in our pediatric unit in our hospital, but they also provided items to our pediatric patients in our rehab clinic and also a lot patients who are forgotten, which are our youngest patients in Parkview Behavioral Health.”
“When we donate and see the children light up that makes us light up as well. So, yes, we’re very interested,” said Terry Kummer, president of the Fort Wayne Corvette Club. “We’re Corvette owners, so we’re all still children at heart ourselves.”
A couple jumparoos and a jumper were among the other items the club donated.
