Gamma Theta Receives Award
The Gamma Theta Chapter of DKG recently received the Herschman Award from University Hospitals of Cleveland. This annual award recognizes those volunteers who work in their homes or communities to benefit the patients at University Hospitals.
Gamma Theta has collected travel size toiletries along with gently used books and magazines since 2014. Over the last four years more than 5,800 items have been donated to the hospital's NICU & PICU units and more recently also to the Seidman Cancer Center. Some of the books go to the hospital's Reach Out and Read program where volunteers read to children while they are waiting for a doctor's appointment. The toiletries are used to create personal care kits for family members who are staying unexpectedly with loved ones.
Representing the Chapter at the awards luncheon were (L to R) Linda Wood, Chapter President; Cindy Ferritto; Marg Galla, UH coordinator of volunteer services; Heather Tromba, Service Committee Chairman; and Marcia Searson.
