WEST WHITELAND >> Efforts by one local charity to provide hotel rooms to families traveling for medical care for their children passed a milestone last month after providing roughly 1,300 hotel room nights total.

Officials said the charity passed the 1,000-night mile mark in November of 2015, and that they expect to provide over 800 nights alone in 2016.
