Greetings to All from the newly founded Nursing Club,
We would like to ask for your help in meeting an urgent need for assistance in our area. The shelter for homeless adults in Hazard has a severe shortage of linens (twin size), especially blankets– and the need is growing. The number of persons seeking a warm place to sleep has almost doubled this month (up from 18 to 30 in the last week). Last weekend there were not enough blankets and some guests had to cover themselves with towels.
We are asking that you donate new or gently used blankets, twin-sized sheets, and towels to help meet the needs. New pillows are also needed. Boxes are placed in prominent locations in Miller Hall, Speed, Sharp, and the Student Center. You can leave your donations in the box or bring them directly to the Nursing Department (Miller Hall). Or call Shelia Chapman at 1756 and she will gladly pick them up.
The donations will be delivered on December 5.
Also needed: gently used or new coat/jackets, new toiletries, small backpacks, hand sanitizer, etc.
Thank you in advance for your assistance. Your generosity has already been stretched this year—and we do appreciate your help in meeting this newly identified need. The Homeless Shelter really is making “room in the Inn” for those without shelter this holiday season. We hope to make their version of the manger a little more comfortable during the cold winter evenings.
The Nursing Club
