at RUNNELLS Specialized Hospital

 

Thursday, February 26th the Volunteer Guild of RUNNELLS Specialized Hospital of Union County will feature the extensive collection of “In the Bag.”  Choose from handbags, briefcases, luggage, wallets, mini bags and small leather goods. The selection will include designer handbags. The sale, which includes the latest styles and colors, will be held in the facility’s multi-purpose room, 40 Watchung Way, Berkeley Heights from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Visa and MasterCard, checks as well as cash accepted.

“All sales are open to the public,” explains 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 performing other tasks.
