S.O.S. – Save on Socks at RUNNELLS Specialized Hospital

The Volunteer Guild of RUNNELLS Specialized Hospital of Union County will feature quality socks for the entire family in both fashion and sport styles in a sale at RUNNELLS Hospital on Thursday, October 25. The sale will include specialty socks for individuals with diabetes and an extensive inventory of children’s socks. Also on sale will be seasonal accessories.

“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 vendor will accept checks, VISA and MasterCard as well as cash. The sale will be held in the facility’s multi-purpose room from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. RUNNELLS is located at 40 Watchung Way in Berkeley Heights.

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
