Two of Santa’s elves showed up at Wayne Memorial Hospital recently bearing “smart” TV sets. Judy Reese, Dunmore, and Florence Sadauskas, Scranton, donated the tv sets on behalf of their non-profit group, the Scranton Telecom Pioneers. An organization of roughly 400 retired telecommunications employees, the Telecom Pioneers routinely collect “wish lists” from charitable groups and try their best to fulfill them through monetary donations from members, raffles and other events.
In addition to the TV sets, which will be installed in family waiting rooms on two patient floors at the hospital, the Telecom Pioneers make “ouch” pillows for patients at Wayne Memorial to help ease any discomfort they might have. Both James Pettinato, RN, director Patient Care Services, and John Conte, director Facility Services, thanked the ladies and the Telecom Pioneers for their thoughtfulness this holiday season.
