St. Francis Medical Center is holding its annual blanket and coat drive as part of its mission to help those in need. They are seeking donations of:

  • new or gently-used blankets, coats, scarves, gloves and winter hats
  • new men’s undergarments and socks (must be packaged)
  • towels and toiletries, such as toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, and hairbrushes

Thanks to the kindness of local community members and St. Francis employees, hundreds of items are donated each year to New Horizon Health Services; and the City of Trenton’s Coordinated Entry and Assessment Services (CEAS) Center, a one-stop facility that battles homeless issues.

The medical center is urging everyone to consider helping those in need by donating a new or gently used item from the list above. Donations can be dropped-off to the chapel of St. Francis Medical Center, 601 Hamilton Avenue in Trenton.

Donations will be accepted through January 3, 2020. Donated items will then be transported to New Horizon Health Services and Trenton’s CEAS Center.

For any questions, please contact the St. Francis Medical Center Pastoral Care office at 609-599-5090. Pictured: Donations fill the chapel pews of last year’s Blanket and Coat Drive at St. Francis Medical Center.
