In spirit of giving, Park City donates toys to Aspirus
For the Star Journal
RHINELANDER – Children who need care in the Aspirus Rhinelander Hospital Emergency Department need will have several items to keep them busy thanks to a donation from the Park City Credit Union Rhinelander Branch.
Through the “Share the Care” program at the credit union, lending specialist Jenny Jorgensen organized the donation of teddy bears, LCD tablets, coloring books and crayons for pediatric patients. Share the Care provides a monthly budget staff can use to do something special in the community.
Aspirus Rhinelander Hospital Emergency Department supervisor Dan Arndorfer and his team accepted the donation, saying it will benefit the children.
“Obviously you don’t come to the ER for fun time,” he said. “It’s because something bad happened and they’re scared or hurt so anything you can do to give them a little relief helps them take their mind off of what’s happening. We’re very thankful for their generosity.”
