The Vidant Pungo Hospital Laboratory observed National Health Laboratory Week (April 22-26) by asking all hospital departments to donate items to help outfit the new Hyde County Hotline Shelter in Engelhard.
Lab Technician Peggy Gibbs learned about the needs of the shelter during a presentation given by Alicia Greer, shelter community outreach coordinator at the
Roanoke Christian Service Camp in Washington.
Gibbs spearheaded the effort by challenging each department to donate at least 10 items by April 26.
Greer and Eve Richardson, shelter client services advocate, said they were overwhelmed by the response.
“I knew you had collected some items, but I never thought it would be so much,” said Richardson.
