Copies of book, video donated to hospital’s pediatric tower

Local author JoAnn Davis reads her book, “Finding Pepper,” to children at Wheeling Hospital’s new pediatric tower.

Children at Davis’ church, Castleman’s Run United Methodist Church in Bethany, collected pennies to donate copies of Davis’ book and a video based on it to the hospital.

With additional funds donated by the church’s adult members, books, videos and stuffed bears also were donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities in Morgantown.
