Taylorville Memorial Hospital Nursing Enrichment team took part in a personal hygiene drive as part of a Halloween Trunk or Treat to benefit clients for Dinner Seasoned with Love. Over one hundred kids and their families came out to the Trunk or Treat and donated items including toothbrushes, toothpaste, face wash, body wash, shampoo/conditioner, razors, deodorant, hair products, and feminine hygiene items.
Jay Boulanger, Community health coordinator for Memorial Health says that the event was as big hit and that the TMH Nursing Enrichment Team is grateful for all the hygiene donations and for Ron’s Produce providing free pumpkins and fruit for the children.
Dinner Seasoned with Love nourishes the hungry with a free hot meal on the third Saturday of each month. Anyone can join the table during mealtime with no questions asked. The donated personal hygiene items will be distributed to parents and guardians at the December dinner.
