WE HAVE BEGUN our Hat & Mitten Drive for Homeward Bound of Plymouth this year! We are asking our patients, friends, and teammates to donate any new, unwrapped winter wear item to this fantastic organization. We have partnered with the Plymouth location again this year and would like to wrap our Christmas tree in the warmth of your donations. Their Plymouth facility would like hats, mittens, scarves for teenagers to adults. Please join us at the office and help us decorate our tree. This is a wonderful non-profit organization who serves our community for those who cannot serve themselves. We will collect items until Monday, December 22. We will also give away an oral hygiene goodie bag for each donation that is brought into our office. If you should have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
