Students from Stellhorn Taekwondo donating 187 stuffed animals
to kids in need of emergency care at Dupont Hospital
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Dec. 21, 2011) – An unexpected trip to the emergency room can bring holiday festivities to a grinding halt, especially for children who should be enjoying the happiness of the season. In hopes of making that early winter trip to the hospital a little less scary, students from Stellhorn Taekwondo have purchased 170 stuffed animals for children who visit the Dupont Hospital ER in the coming weeks. The donation is part of a student leadership project taking place at the center.
Dupont Hospital CEO Chad Towner will visit Stellhorn Taekwondo, 6063 Stellhorn Road, at 2:30 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 22, to receive the gifts, thank the students for their generosity and observe a few minutes of training.
