Superheroes fight grime at Lehigh Valley Reilly Children’s Hospital

PRESS PHOTO BY MARIEKE ANDRONACHE Superman watches as The Flash and Spiderman dangle from the six-story, 89-foot-tall Lehigh Valley Reilly Children's Hospital Nov. 17 as pediatric patients look on. Additional photos appear on Page A8.
Buzz Lightyear, as well as Superman, The Flash and Spiderman, pay a special visit to the children at Lehigh Valley Reilly Children's Hospital, Cedar Crest Boulevard and Interstate 78, Allentown. “The superheroes were not able to visit the children inside the hospital this year due to ongoing COVID-19 safety protocols and higher than normal seasonal illnesses,” Brian Downs, public information officer, LVHN, said.

Superman watches as Flash and Spiderman wave to the children receiving care through the windows. In real life, these superheroes work for Southampton Window Cleaning & Janitorial Services, Inc. This is their third year paying a visit to the children's hospital.
