February 28 Handbags & Accessories Sale at Runnells Specialized Hospital

The Volunteer Guild of RUNNELLS Specialized Hospital of Union County will feature a sale by Glens Bags on Thursday, February 28th.

The spectacular selection of handbags and accessories will be on sale in the facility’s multi-purpose room at 40 Watchung Way, Berkeley Heights from 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Credit cards as well as cash will be 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 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.
