Parkview holds fourth annual "Mittens for Munchkins" program

Posted: Thursday, November 18, 2010

Parkview Huntington Hospital invites the Huntington County community to share its warmth this winter with the children of the county by participating in the hospital’s fourth annual “Mittens for Munchkins” Christmas program.

Two Christmas Giving Trees are located in the hospital mall, upon which visitors may hang a new pair of mittens or gloves, a hat or scarf. Items may be purchased and brought in, or items may be purchased in the hospital’s Gift Shop.

“The Mittens for Munchkins program has given Parkview Huntington Hospital employees an opportunity to help our little ones in the community stay warm over the cold winter months,” said Darlene Garrett, Parkview Huntington Hospital chief operating officer. “Generous people in the community also have contributed in year’s past, and we are happy to accept their generosity again this year on behalf of the children.”

The hospital’s Gift Shop is located near the front entrance to the hospital. The gifts are tax-deductible, and Gift Shop hours are: 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and noon to 4 p.m., weekends. The gifts will be distributed to families by the Salvation Army of Huntington County and the Markle Church of Christ’s Karing for Kids program following the hospital’s giving deadline of Monday, Dec. 13.
