UPI News Service, 10/23/2012 

A Pennsylvania window washing service sent a quartet of workers in superhero costumes to brighten windows and spirits at a children's hospital.

Edward Matuizek, president of Allegheny Window Cleaning Inc. in Springdale, said the company did not charge the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh for Monday's window-washing by Spider-Man, Batman, Superman and Captain America, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Tuesday.

"This isn't about us. This is about them," Matuizek said.

"It's a nice place to work, but emotionally it's a real tough place to work. You go home and pick your own kids up, and there's a lot of gratitude there," he said of the hospital.

Matuizek said the scheme was suggested by his wife, who read about a similar stunt at a British hospital, and was given the go-ahead by Children's Hospital facilities director Elizabeth Munsch.

The costumed window washers were Rick Bollinger, 46, and Mark Errico, 26, both of Harrison; Ed Hetrick, 36, of Springdale; and Jim Zaremba, 43, of Lower Burrell.

"The kids were loving it," said Errico, who wore the Captain America suit. "Everywhere we went, they were coming in from different rooms."
