Annual Toiletry Drive

Every year, the Cultural Diversity Committee joins in the hospital-wide sponsorship of activities honoring Dr. Martin Lurther King, Jr.’s legacy of community service with its annual Toiletry Drive for patients discharged from our Behavioral Health unit. This year’s toiletry drive is underway and will run through Friday, January 31. As you do your regular grocery shopping, please remember to pick up a few of these items for our patients: toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, combs, brushes, and other hygiene items, as well as men’s and women’s socks.

Donations will be accepted at the following drop-off locations: CCU (WS, Floor 3), Neurodiagnostics (Room 489), and the EP Suite (PHI, Room 436).
