PITTSTON — St. Johns Evangelical Lutheran Church recently made two contributions for $200 and $50 to Lily’s Treasure Chest, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization named after Lily Harris that provides toys, games, coloring books, etc. to children receiving chemotherapy treatments or lengthy treatments.
Donations are sent to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and The Penn State Children’s Hospital in Hershey. Each donation is about 200 pieces ranging from coloring books to hand sanitizer a depending on the needs of the hospital.
Donations may be submitted through lilystreasurechest.org. All item donations must be new, no used items can be accepted due to infectious disease regulations. Cloth items are limited to baby socks and bibs.
The organization began because Lily’s favorite part of going to the hospital was seeing the treasure chest. This was a small reward and distraction as she received her treatment.
