The Volunteer Guild of RUNNELLS Specialized Hospital of Union County will hold a vendor sale on Friday, March 16th featuring an impressive array of watches as well as14 karat gold and sterling silver pieces from Reese Fine Jewelry. The vendor accepts Visa, Master Card, Discover and American Express. The sale will run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the multi-purpose room of the facility, located at 40 Watchung Way, Berkeley Heights.

“There is never a fee for the public to attend our sales,” said Union County Freeholder Chester Holmes, liaison to RUNNELLS SpecializedHospital. “A percentage of each purchase made at these sales is credited to the Volunteer Guild. They use all funds raised to enrich the lives of residents and patients by obtaining items that may include televisions, DVD players/VCR’s and prizes for their bingo games as well as paying for a variety of entertainment throughout the year. The efforts of the Guild, which make vendor sales possible, also sponsor a holiday party/gift distribution and a summer ice cream social in cooperation with the Berkeley Heights Lions Club.”

The Volunteer Guild and the Office of Volunteer Services of
RUNNELLS Specialized Hospital are always interested in recruiting volunteers. Flexible hours and a variety of opportunities exist with resident contact as well as performing other tasks. Anyone who
would like further information should call the Office of Volunteer Services at 908-771-5847.
