The Ladies Aid Society (LAS) at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center has been volunteering and giving monetary gifts to Presbyterian Hospital for 140 years. In early years, volunteers from local Presbyterian Churches visited patients, both in the hospital and when they returned to their homes. Volunteers also made nurses uniforms, bed linens and rolled bandages. In recent years, the organization managed the “Cubby Hole” gift shop located on the first floor in the Wright Saunders lobby. One of the largest financial gifts from the LAS was given to help build the rooftop helipad on the Cupp building.
LAS gifts are made possible in part by funds raised from sales throughout the hospital. The following upcoming sales will be held in the Wright Saunders lobby hallway, outside the Atwood Cafeteria:
- November 2: Heigh Ho Silver
- November 16: Sock Sale
- December 12 & 13: Kinetic Works
Sales benefit the Ladies Aid Society, the auxiliary of Penn Presbyterian Medical Center.
LAS is always looking for dedicated volunteers to be members of its Governing Board. For information on future sales or to become involved with the Ladies Aid Society please contact Florence McKeown at 610.667.7739.
