TAYLORVILLE – Taylorville Memorial Hospital Nursing Enrichment Team held a personal hygiene drive as part of a Halloween Trunk or Treat to benefit clients of the local nonprofit Dinner Seasoned with Love.
One hundred kids and their families came out to Trunk or Treat and donated items including toothbrushes, toothpaste, face wash, body wash, shampoo/conditioner, razors, deodorant, hair products and feminine hygiene items.
“The event was a great hit again this year,” said Jay Boulanger, community health coordinator for Memorial Health. “We are grateful for all the hygiene donations, and Ron’s Produce provided free pumpkins and fruit for the kids, which added to the festive atmosphere.”
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.
