PHH donates winter clothes to Love INC

Posted: Friday, January 6, 2017

Parkview Huntington Hospital’s annual Mitten Tree sprouted hundreds of colorful hats, gloves, mittens and scarves in December with help from hospital employees, volunteers and guests.

The annual clothing drive is conducted by the Parkview Huntington Hospital Guild, which invited people to either purchase apparel items in the hospital gift shop for donation or bring in new items. Donated items were periodically plucked from the tree and packed into totes for delivery to Love INC to help individuals and families in need of warm winter clothing.

“It’s always so wonderful to see the outpouring of generosity from our co-workers, guild members, volunteers and other friends who help us with the Mitten Tree project,” said Juli Johnson, president, Parkview Huntington Hospital. “We hope their contributions will help many, many people stay warm and dry this winter.”
