The Volunteer Guild of RUNNELLS Specialized Hospital of Union County will feature a sale by “Time Marches On”; watches with today’s styling at yesterday’s prices on Thursday, June 5th.

There will be leather band, bracelet and bangle styles, all discounted and priced at $10-$25 from 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. in the facility’s multi-purpose room, 40 Watchung Way, Berkeley Heights. Children and the young at heart will love the array which includes Mickey and Minnie, Barbie, Pooh, Hello Kitty, Harry Potter, Sponge Bob and Dora. Gift boxes will be available.

“All sales are open to the public,” 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.”

Flexible hours and a variety of opportunities exist with resident contact as well as other tasks.
