RUNNELLS HOSPITAL VOLUNTEER GUILD TO FEATURE
 THE “GADGET LADY” APRIL 26TH

The Volunteer Guild of RUNNELLS Specialized Hospital of Union County will hold a vendor sale Thursday, April 26th featuring the “Gadget Lady” (Kruger Sporting Goods). The sale, 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. in the facility’s multi-purpose room, 40 Watchung Way, Berkeley Heights includes scissors, knives, household tools, various gadgets including compasses, sports gloves and ladies sweaters. Cash, checks and credit cards accepted.

“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 Guild, which makes vendor sales possible, also sponsors a holiday party/gift distribution and a summer ice cream social in cooperation with the Berkeley Heights Lions Club.”

RUNNELLS Volunteer Guild and Office of Volunteer Services are always interested in recruiting volunteers. Flexible hours and a variety of opportunities exist with resident contact as well as performing other tasks. Call the Office of Volunteer Services at 908-771-5847 for more information.
