Schuyler Hospital Recipient of Several Donations

In the summer of 2008, Mary Elyna Fish ran a lemonade stand, with the intent of donating her proceeds to needy children. Over the course of her 2008 summer lemonade sale at Freedom Village, Mary Elyna raised a whopping $65.18, and donated all her hard-earned money to Schuyler Hospital. Recently, Mary Elyna doubled her donation to Schuyler Hospital, raising $122.76 by working with nine other students in an after-school program to run a lemonade stand at Freedom Village, plus two other locations, last summer. Another repeat donor, Doris Pike of Burdett, once again donated bears for pediatric patients in the Emergency Department. According to Pearl Jayne, Emergency Department Nurse Manager, “They are a wonderful gift and are truly appreciated by the children who receive them.” Kohl’s Store #35, Horseheads, recently delivered gifts for children at Schuyler Hospital. Store Manager, Gary Ector, brought Dr. Seuss stuffed toys, books, and more to help comfort pediatric patients.
