In lieu of buying Christmas gifts for their physicians, Wayne Memorial Hospital donated $1,500 to the Wayne County Toy Drive. Employees added to the gift by donating 236 new, unwrapped toys. Shown with the check are Hospital Employee Madison Klymshyn (left) and Hospital CEO Joe Ierardi (right). Also shown loading the truck to deliver to Jesup City Hall is Hospital Employee Matt Farrell.
Since 2009, the hospital has been donating money and/or toys to the cause spearheaded by the city. All money and gifts stay local for the benefit of local children, ages 0-18. For some children, the gifts from the toy drive may be the only ones received for Christmas. Anyone interested in giving to the drive may contact Jesup City Hall at (912) 427- 1313.
