The Ladies Aid Society (LAS) at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center hasbeen volunteering and giving monetary gifts to Presbyterian Hospital for 140years. In early years, volunteers from local Presbyterian Churches visitedpatients, both in the hospital and when they returned to their homes.Volunteers also made nurses uniforms, bed linens and rolled bandages. In recentyears, the organization managed the “Cubby Hole” gift shop located on the firstfloor in the Wright Saunders lobby. One of the largest financial gifts from theLAS was given to help build the rooftop helipad on the Cupp building.
LAS gifts are made possible in part by funds raised from salesthroughout the hospital. The following upcoming sales will be held in theWright Saunders lobby hallway, outside the Atwood Cafeteria:
- November 2: Heigh Ho Silver
- November 16: Sock Sale
- December 12 & 13: Kinetic Works
Sales benefit the Ladies Aid Society, the auxiliary of PennPresbyterian Medical Center.
LAS is always looking for dedicated volunteers to be members of its GoverningBoard. For information on future sales or to become involved with the LadiesAid Society please contact Florence McKeown at 610.667.7739.
