Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice Families Receive Blizzard Packs
The volunteers of the Karen Ann Quinlan Memorial Foundation were instrumental in getting the agency’s 2011-12 Winter Season Blizzard Packs out. Blizzard Packs are packages given to patients and their families to remind them of needed items to have on hand in case of emergencies. Included in the Blizzard Packs are such items as battery operated flashlights, manual can openers, toiletry items and canned foodstuffs. Also included are Office of Emergency Management telephone numbers and utility companies within their municipality. “Over 96 packs were assembled by our awesome team!” remarked Marlina Schetting, Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice Director of Social Services. Pictured from left to right are Megan Leyden, Marie Umutesi, Tara Costen, Janet Stipo and Kristie Kretz.
