MLK Day Toiletry Drive for Behavioral Health

In the spirit of Dr. King’s legacy of community service, the Cultural Diversity Committee is collecting toiletries for patients discharged from PPMC’s Behavioral Health Department. We are requesting donations of toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, combs, brushes, and other hygiene items, as well as men’s and women’s socks.

Drop-off boxes are located in Room 489 and on the Detox Unit of Wright Saunders and in Room 436 (the EP suite) of the Philadelphia Heart Institute. The Toiletry Drive runs through February 15, 2013.

With your generosity and kindness, we will be able to provide many more patients this year with these much-needed items.

For more information, contact or ext. 8899 or or ext. 9487 (PHI).
