Meet Charlotte Rebuck... Charlotte Rebuck is a remarkable young woman. WithΒ her sparkling personality, thoughtful demeanor, and delightful laugh, it's easy to see she will go places in life. That life, however, was nearly extinguished just four years ago in a tragic car accident that took the life of her beloved mother, Courtney, and resulted in Charlotte and her brother, Sam, both being hospitalized in serious condition. Charlotte left the hospital in in a wheelchair, where she remained for nearly six months while she endured physical therapy to help her walk again. She never forgot that dark, lonely time in the hospital, and that was her inspiration in deciding what to do for her senior project at Sugar Valley Rural Charter School - The Jared Box Project. The concept was inspired by a young boy named Jared from State Col- lege, who, sadly, succumbed to cancer when he was just 5 years old. While he was hospitalized, Jared would share all his toys with other children that were in the hospital with him. The Jared Boxes are filled with small treasures for children to play with during their hospital stay, and take home with them when they leave. It was started by his classmates at Our Lady of Victory School in 2001 to honor Jared's memory. Charlotte has just completed her project, with the collection and distribution of over 1093 Jared Boxes for hospitalized children, with money raised from a Bingo event she organized at SVRCS. She arranged for them to be distributed to Geisinger, Mount N ₯ΡΡ…Ήδ°]₯±±₯…΄΄)ΝΑ½ΙΠ°Ω…Ή•±₯…°°)•ΙΝ•δM‘½Ι”°…Ή±Ρ½½Ή„‘½ΝΑ₯Ρ…±ΜΈ ‘…Ι±½ΡΡ”Ν…έё”•αΑ•Ι₯•Ή”‘…́‰••ΈΩ•ΙδΙ•έ…Ι‘₯Ήœ°…Ή)₯Ё₯ٕ́‘•ΘΙ•…Ё½΅™½ΙЁѼ­Ή½άΝ‘”₯́‘½₯ΉœΝ½΅•Ρ‘₯ΉœΡΌ‘•±ΐ±•ΝΝ•ΈΡ‘”Ν…‘Ή•Ν́…Ή‰½Ι•‘½΄„‘₯±•αΑ•Ι€΄)•Ή•Μέ‘•ΈΡ‘•δ…Ι”‘½ΝΑ₯Ρ…±₯镐ΈM‘”έ½Υ±±₯­”ΡΌΡ‘…Ή¬•Ω•Ιε½Ή”έ‘Ό‘•±Α•½ΥΠ°•ΝΑ•₯…±±δ‘•Θ΅•ΉΡ½ΙΜ°!½±±δ) …ΙΉ•Θ…Ή!•…Ρ‘•Θ•ε•ΘΈΉέ”έ½Υ±±₯­”ΡΌΡ‘…Ή¬ ‘…Ι±½ΡΡ”°™½Θ™Υ±™₯±±₯ΉœΝՍ …Έ…΅…ι₯Ήœ•Ή‘•…Ω½Θ„)QΌΉ½΅₯Ή…Ρ”„‘…Ι₯Ρ䰁ٽ±ΥΉΡ••Θ°½Θ½½Ν…΅…Ι₯Ρ…Έ™½ΘƒŠqA•½Α±”!•±Α₯ΉœA•½Α±”³Št•΅…₯°Ύ…Π聝½½‘Ή•έΝ­Ή•ΠΉ½ΙœΈ)±°…΅Άέ₯±°ΙΥΈ)™Ι½΄€ε…΄΄ΝΑ΄Έ)±°…΅Ά…Ι”™½Θ…•Μ€ά΄ΔΤ°)ΥΉ±•Ν́½Ρ‘•Ιέ₯Ν”Ή½Ρ•Έ)I•₯Νѕȁ₯Έ΅‘½ΥΝ”°½Ή±₯Ή”°)½Θ½Ω•ΘΡ‘”Α‘½Ή”„(ΘΘ+Šq½½9•έϊt€΄΄5…䀴΄έέάΉ‰•…ɍ½ΥΉΡΙ坽½‘Ή•έΜΉ½΄
