The Humble Bumble Project recently donated 15 comfort care bags for patients receiving treatment at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center in Wellsboro. The care bags include useful items for patients such as tissue packs, Chapstick, hand lotion, and hand sanitizer. Patients at each Hillman Center tend to greatly appreciate gifts from the community, including helpful sanitary items, blankets, hats, and entertaining items like activity books.

The Humble Bumble Project, founded by the Griffin family of Middlebury Center, is a nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to assisting the families of pediatric and young adult cancer patients. The organization is made up of the Griffins' friends and family, all dedicated to lifting up pediatric and young adult cancer patients and passing on the same togetherness that first sparked the creation of the Humble Bumble Project and its inspiration, Paige Griffin.
