Man's best friend is providing comfort to fliers at the Lehigh Valley International Airport. Therapy dogs can be seen roaming the airport's main terminal to visit with travelers wh



"I do it because it changes the lives of a child," said Ogurkis.

Each chapter is supported through volunteers and fundraising. Ogurkis will organize a "build day" and all of the volunteers will come together and build the frames and all other parts of the beds.

They will then receive requests for beds from families in need. The next step is the delivery and assembly of the beds.

Ogurkis encourages anyone with an interest in the Philadelphia area to open a branch of their own. She also says that she would be more than happy to assist them with getting started.
