White Plains, NY (June, 2011) - White Plains Hospital has formed a relationship with Hannah Banana Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to brightening the lives of thousands of chronically ill, hospitalized, and terminally ill patients by giving them therapeutic gifts while they're in our care.
Hannah Banana Foundation generously donates bags filled with therapeutic gifts such as art supplies, toys and journals directly to word finds, adult coloring books, pens, markers, journals, bookmarks, and playing cards to thousands of adult patients of leading New York and New Jersey hospitals in hopes that these gifts will bring smiles to those who are suffering.
White Plains Hospital is the first hospital in Westchester County to form a relationship with Hannah Banana Foundation.
Joyce Zeller, a Volunteer from Hannah Banana Foundation visited White Plains Hospital recently to personally deliver 230 gift bags and 90 white boards (for those patients who have difficulty speaking). White Plains Hospital Nurse Manager, Margaret Brock, was on-hand to receive the thoughtful donation.
