Mission Statement

The mission of the Jared Box Project is to lift the spirits of children in the hospital.


The goal of the Jared Box Project is to lift the spirits of children the hospital. A Jared Box is a shoebox size plastic storage box filled with small gifts, toys, cards, and games. The boxes provide a fun, special diversion for young patients in the hospital. More importantly, they are putting smiles of the faces of very deserving little patients in your local community.
Join us and make some Jared Boxes for the children in your local community.

This is a great project. Jared Boxes are inexpensive, easy and fun to make.

The Jared Box project was started in 2001 by the children at Our Lady of Victory School in State College to honor their classmate and friend, Jared. He was a brave little boy who battled cancer with courage and faith that continues to inspire us all. Since the project was started, over 750,000 Jared Boxes have been made in all 50 states. To learn more about the project, go to www.thejaredbox.com. The web site provides more information about the project, along with detailed instructions on how to make Jared Boxes.
