WAYLAND­ — Vincent House has been a sanctuary for the terminally ill and their families for many years.


Mary Jo Jacobs, Vincent House volunteer, told Genesee Country Express about a special little girl.


Avalyn Hall, 10, of Dansville wanted to help dedicate her birthday to Vincent House. Todd Hall, Avalyn’s father, reached out to Vincent House and asked what was needed.


Jacobs informed the Hall Family that they were in need of snacks, paper products, canned foods, noodles, garbage bags, cleaning supplies, and juice.


“They even contacted Edgar Schmidt and had a donation box set up at Star Theater,” Jacobs said. “We had a whole box of things donated to us. We were able to get everything we needed on the list.”


Jacobs said that is is very sweet this little girl wanted to help Vincent House.


“In this day and age when all we hear is about the bad things kids do, it is nice to hear about the good things too,” she said. “We are very touched that Avalyn donated her birthday to help us.”


In other Vincent House news, they sold $1,800 worth of Christmas flowers. The Masonic Temple had Kim Snyder, Vincent House director, and Jacobs come out for a special dinner. Of course, Christmas in Wayland sold about 500 Chicken Barbecues.
