2/6/2012 —

Students in the Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) Program at Penn State DuBois are collecting items to be donated to the Veteran’s Administration Hospital in Erie.  All members of the public and campus community are invited to contribute items as well.


The donated items will help injured veterans who are currently hospitalized, who don’t have the resources to obtain the items themselves.  The students are asking for donations of "comfort items", such as:

  • Shaving cream                                  
  • Toothbrushes                          
  • Toothpaste
  • Baby wipes                            
  • Emery boards
  • Denture cleaner                      
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Combs                                    
  • Twin blade disposable razors
  • Deodorant                  
  • Assorted occasion cards
  • Shower caps                           
  • Sketch pads
  • Powder                                               
  • Large-print word search books
  • Pens
  • Brand Name Kleenex

Donation boxes labeled "VA Hospital Donations" will be placed around campus at Penn State DuBois. Those who wish to contribute may also contact LuAnn at 375-4748 or ldb4@psu.edu and arrangements can be made for a student to pick up donations from individuals. Items must be collected by Monday, February 20.
