Thanks to the kind and generous giving spirit of Phelps County Regional Medical Center (PCRMC) employees and the community, area students can keep a little bit warmer this winter.
A total of 1,264 gloves, mittens, hats, scarves, socks and other winter accessories were collected during the “Share the Warmth” drive, sponsored by the PCRMC Mission Possible team.
During the drive held from late November 2017 through the new year, both PCRMC staff and the public were invited to donate new winter clothing items for local children who would otherwise go without these warm necessities.
“It was wonderful to see the outpouring of support for this cause. I was very pleased to see that more than 1,200 items were donated,” said Tracy Limmer, PCRMC Mission Possible team member.
On Friday, January 5, 2018, members of the PCRMC Mission Possible group sorted and delivered the winter clothing accessories to area public schools in Rolla, St. James, Newburg, Edgar Springs, Waynesville, Dixon, Salem and Vienna.
“The schools were very appreciative of our donation,” Limmer said.
