Save on casual clothing at RUNNELLS Specialized Hospital


Thursday, March 12th the Volunteer Guild of RUNNELLS Specialized Hospital of Union County will present a collection of women’s casual clothing.  Choose from a wide array including a selection from Coldwater Creek and Blair ®. The sale will be held in the facility’s multi-purpose room, 40 Watchung Way, Berkeley Heights from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

“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 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.”

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.
