Delnor’s Giving Tree provides coats for the community

By on December 20, 2010

Geneva—Cold weather is definitely here, and for an increasing number of people, that means figuring out where they can find just one coat that will protect them from the biting cold. Falling temperatures mean struggling to keep warm, and the tough economy puts even more people in need. One of the ways we can all help is through Delnor’s Giving Tree—Coats for the Community drive.

For the month of December, The Giving Tree is committed to collecting new or gently used clean blankets, winter coats, mittens, gloves, scarves and hats in the spirit of helping others this holiday season. All items collected will be donated to the Salvation Army.

Making a donation is easy—simply pull to the entrance of Delnor Hospital, and the valet parking staff will take your donated items and place them by the Delnor Giving Tree located in the main lobby of Delnor Hospital. Valet is available Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

If you are among the fortunate and have an extra coat, winter clothing item or warm blanket that you just don’t use any more, please consider donating it to the Delnor Giving Tree—Coats for the Community drive.
