Youth turns unwanted items into donated funds

Seven-year-old Azlyn McQueen and her mother, medical laboratory scientist Niki McQueen, wear identical lab smocks during Azlyn’s visit last week to her mother’s work area at Parkview Huntington Hospital. Azlyn was at the hospital to see the lab and give a gift of proceeds from her July 4 garage sale to Parkview Huntington Foundation. The gift will be used to bring cheer to pediatric patients at the hospital.

They were items she just didn’t need any longer – cars, books, a lawn mower, that type of thing.

She found a cash box, set up a table in the garage of her home, and had herself a sale over the Fourth of July. She made some money, and knew just where she wanted it to go. Her garage sale would help a particular group of hospital patients. It would help children. Children just like her.

Justin Daniels

Justin Daniels is the new manager at Daniels Automotive.

Daniels may be new to the position, but he’s no stranger to the Huntington car care center. He spent years around the business when he was growing up, by virtue of being the son of owner Scott Daniels. The elder Daniels preceded his son in the role of manager and passed the position on to him in August.

“It’s just about a continuation of family business,” says Justin Daniels. “We talked about it for a long time when I was in college and stuff.”
