Southern Tier Xpress Brings a Smile to WCA Hospital’s Pediatric Patients

WCA Hospital
Southern Tier Express Hockey Team Members Luke Grossman, Tim O’Sullivan, and Hunter Kepple donate stuffed animals to Tyler Anderson.

Jamestown, New York, (December 21, 2015) It’s that time of year again when the spirit of giving is in the air. The Southern Tier Xpress Hockey Team is no stranger to giving back to their community. This was the first year of their Teddy Bear Toss, which fans were able to toss teddy bears onto the ice during a special tribute game for pediatric children at WCA Hospital.

“Southern Tier Xpress has had a long-standing relationship with WCA Hospital and continues to prove their dedication to children who are ill this holiday season,” WCA Director of Development Megan D’Angelo said. “We are truly grateful for their support and efforts to help bring smiles and brighten days to these deserving children at a time that can often be strenuous for families dealing with illness.”

Southern Tier Xpress is asking the community to lend a hand in their mission in sending a message of hope to ill children during the holiday season by donating to WCA Hospital’s Pediatric Wishlist. The wishlist can be found at

The mission of WCA Hospital's 4D Pediatric Unit is to provide quality healthcare with dedication, compassion and pride. Positive attitude, specialized training and a team approach assist the staff in improving the outcomes of a diverse patient population.

WCA strongly encourages the parent to be involved in the care of their child and WCA invites the parent to ask questions and share their concerns. By working together, WCA can give a child the love and care necessary for recovery.

To make a gift to support WCA Hospital’s Pediatric Unit, please contact Megan D’Angelo at (716) 664-8423 or mail your tax-deductible gift to: WCA Office of Development, PO Box 840, Jamestown, NY 14702-0840.
