LAKE PARK, Ga. (WTXL) - The National Junior Beta Club at Lake Park Elementary school in Lowndes County held a bake sale to raise funds to buy DVD players for kids hospitalized at South Georgia Medical Center.
The fourth and fifth graders raised $255 dollars and were able to purchase 9 DVD players.
The idea was pitched by a student, Ty Parks, who spend several week's in SGMC's pediatric unit in December.
When his physician learned of the fundraiser, he decided to match it. A total of 18 DVD players were donated and they will be placed in each pediatric patient's room.
