to Feature Sale of Sheets, Towels and Sports Bands

The Volunteer Guild of RUNNELLS Specialized Hospital of Union County presents an assortment of sheets, towels and sport bands at Runnells Hospital Volunteer Guild’s sale, Thursday, October 11th.

“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 sale will be held in the facility’s multipurpose room from 9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m. RUNNELLS is located at 40 Watchung Way in Berkeley Heights.
