Providence gift shops are open and looking for volunteers

A huge thank you to Herald writer Andrea Brown and photographer Ryan Berry for the article and photos featuring our Providence General Children’s Association gift shops (“Get some retail therapy from Providence hospital gift shop,” The Herald, April 24.

Staff and visitors to our Colby Twig shop can now find a snack or unique gift and those stopping by the Pavilion Gift Shop at the Pacific Campus Pavilion for Women and Children can find those special items for new babies and moms. A win for everyone! One of our biggest challenges now is to bring back our volunteers and get them re-oriented to the new policies and procedures at the hospital.

We also would very much like to recruit new volunteers! This will enable us to open our shops more days and for more hours. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Kathy Krull at 425-493-1973.

Again, thank you for giving your readers an update about our PGCA gift shops!

Sharron White, president

Providence General Children’s Association
