Emergency situations that require a trip to the hospital occur without forewarning. This means patients often arrive in pajamas or damaged soiled clothing. Everybody is aware hospital gowns are not that fashion-forward. When it comes time to go home, clean new clothing can make all the difference.
Volunteer-run clothing closets at hospitals fill this important patient need. Read more about the new clothing closet at WakeMed Cary Hospital in a recent Cary News article.
If you are interested in donating to Cary Hospital’s upstart clothing closet, please contact Beverly Lamelin. Clothing in small sizes, shoes and slippers for both men and women are specific needs at this time.
