Donated hats, gloves, socks decorate Good Samaritan Giving Trees
This winter will be a little warmer for those in need, thanks to the generosity of employees at MultiCare Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup.
For the past month, employees decorated three Good Samaritan Giving Trees with new hats, scarves, gloves, mittens and socks. The trees overflowed with items from the clothing drive that ran from Nov. 14 to Dec. 16. Additionally, employees with the Institute for Learning and Development collected and knitted donations.
The grand total of the efforts:
- 32 scarves
- 83 hats
- 212 pairs of socks
- 168 pairs of gloves
Several of the donated items were handmade. Executive Assistant Cheryl Hixon, who knitted a few hats for the Good Samaritan Giving Trees, said she hopes that her gifts will help keep someone warm this winter. She said she thinks about the person who will be wearing one of her hats.
"I hope they appreciate that someone made it for them," Hixon said.Donations will benefit people who are served by the Mobile Integrated Health Care Clinic, Luckett House in Puyallup, and PACT (Program for Assertive Community Treatment).
