The Volunteer Guild of Runnells Hospital Presents
S & S Trading - April 12th

Come to the multi-purpose room of RUNNELLS Specialized Hospital in Berkeley Heights on Thursday, April 12th between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. for a sale that includes gift and home décor items. The sale includes leather goods, magnetic photo frames and photo albums as well as nightlights. Be sure to checkout the $1 special closeout merchandise! The vendor will accept cash, credit cards and checks (the latter with a valid ID).

“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.

RUNNELLS Hospital is located at 40 Watchung Way, Berkeley Heights.
