In honor of #143DayInPA, incarcerated individuals at SCI Laurel Highlands donated $7,000 to Cambria County Children and Youth Services. The Phoenix Group raised money through hoagie, pastry, soda, protein and ice cream sales throughout the year, and it decided to spread some kindness and be a good neighbor by supporting the Cambria CYS.

#143DayInPA is a statewide day of kindness in honor of Mister Rogers. His way of saying “I love you” was “1-4-3" — for the number of letters in each word. May 23 is the 143rd day of the year, which has become a day to share acts of love and kindness.
