Sinai Hospital Employees Donate Supplies

As part of Sinai Hospital's year-long 50th anniversary celebration, employees donated enough food and school supplies to fill a LifeBridge Health shuttle last week. The food was given to Hackerman-Patz House, and the supplies will be sent to Cross County and Pimlico schools.

"With all of the things going on with the economy, it was great to see how the staff was still able to really step in and help," says Sinai Volunteer Services Department manager Beth Duffin. "The child life specialists, for example, were very helpful in donating crafts and supplies for the students."

The Hackerman-Patz house provides guest suites for those families and patients traveling to Sinai for an extended visit.

"Many of these families are far away from their homes, and the donated food will make it easier for them to gather what they need without always having to eat out," Duffin says.

The donated school supplies included notebooks, folders, and writing utensils, all to make it possible for children to get off to a good start in the fall.
