Owen Parco

For Owen Parco's birthday this year, he told his friends not to bring him any presents. Instead, he asked them to bring small items like colouring books, stuffed animals, and crayons so he could donate them to Bluewater Health's Emergency Department for other children to use during emerge visits.

This past week, Owen (pictured front left, blue shirt), his brother James, and sister Dana (both pictured beside Owen) stopped by emerge to drop off some of the items received at his birthday, which were graciously accepted by emerge staff.
