Community Awareness

Lights of Love Shine at Hunterdon Medical Center

For over 26 years, the Lights of Love program has been a time-honored tradition at Hunterdon Medical Center. Since its inception, this program has raised $622,000 which allows Hunterdon Medical Center to continue to provide excellent healthcare for our community.
Each year, the Lights of Love evergreen tree, located on the front lawn of the Hunterdon Medical Center campus, is illuminated with thousands of lights representing gifts received from donors all over the country to honor or memorialize their loved ones.
Once again it is time to think about the people who mean the most to us. You can do this by making a $20 tax-deductible donation to the Hunterdon Medical Center Foundation requesting that a "light of love" be placed on the "Lights of Love" Tree. In addition, you can make a larger donation in which shining ornaments will be placed on the tree. These levels include: Circle of Love - $500, Candlelight - $250 and Starlight - $100.
For additional information and to make a donation, call the Hunterdon Medical Center Foundation at 908-788-6498 or visit https://hunterdonhealthcare.thankyou4caring.org .

Hunterdon Medical Center Needs Blood Donors
     Did you know that you can save three lives by donating one unit of blood? This year, patients at Hunterdon Medical Center will use over 2,000 units of blood and blood products. Many people do not realize how important it is to donate blood unless you or loved one is in need. There is no substitute for blood. We need donors to replenish our supply. During this holiday season of giving, please consider helping your community by scheduling an appointment to donate blood at Hunterdon Medical Center.
     To be eligible to donate blood a person must be at least 17 years of age, be in good health and weigh at least 110 pounds. "We are looking for donors of all blood types," stated Cathy Conroy, Blood Donor Recruiter at the Hunterdon Medical Center. Conroy said, "Our donors are all special people who give blood only to help others in need. It isn’t everyday you can save someone’s life. Most of us can give this gift and keep giving it, regularly."
     The Hunterdon Medical Center Blood Bank is located on the 3rd Floor of the hospital. To schedule an appointment to donate blood call Hunterdon Medical Center’s Blood Donor Recruiter at (908) 788–6405.

     Veronica is working with the US War Dog Association, a nonprofit organization of former and current US Military Dog Handlers and supporting members committed to promoting the history of the Military Service Dogs. She was inspired by her love of animals to raise community awareness about these military units and to provide them with this well earned and much needed help. After high school, Veronica aspires to major in Animal Science and enlist in the Air Force Academy to serve as a K-9 Officer.
     Donation boxes will be placed at area high schools and local businesses to collect dog supplies such as warming mats, medium and large k9 boots, collapsible bowls, rope chews, beds, and treats. For the soldiers, donations can include razors, hair products, eye drops, hand sanitizer, soap, and travel size tissues. Veronica is also looking for donations to help support the shipping costs to Iraq and Afghanistan, which are approximately $1.00 per pound.
     For individuals and local businesses interested in donating products, placing a donation box at your location, or to assist with the overseas shipping, please contact tromanczak@hcpolytech.org.
     The Equine/Large Animal Program provides students with the professional and technical skills required? to effectively take care of and manage large animal species. Students will take advantage of our unique animal communities and visit local farming businesses including equine, dairy, beef, alpacas, llamas, sheep and buffalo to gain hands-on training and knowledge of working farm operations to supplement classroom learning.
