Book your trip to RUNNELLS’ May 7th book and gift fair!

 

The RUNNELLS Volunteer Guild will present a diverse array of books and gifts from Books Are Fun® at RUNNELLS Specialized Hospital of Union County on Thursday, May 7th. If you appreciate variety and value, this special sale at great savings is for you. The sale will be held from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. in the facility’s multi-purpose room.

“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 or performing other tasks. To get further information call the Office of Volunteer Services at 908-771-5847.
