Social Salon in Whitehouse Station Will Collect New Toys for Hunterdon Medical Center

November 21, 2018

When children have to be admitted to the hospital, it can be a frightening, upsetting and scary experience.  They are in a new place with people they probably don’t know and things may be happening that they might not understand.  A small stuffed animal or toy can be very comforting and can alleviate some of that fear.   Social Salon will be collecting new toys for pediatric patients at Hunterdon Medical Center now through December 21st.

“Five years ago, my son was admitted to Hunterdon Medical Center’s pediatric floor a few days after Christmas.  During his stay he was given a new toy and it meant so much to him and lifted his spirits during a difficult time. We have given back on a small level since then, but are excited to use a larger platform of the salon and local community to do a donation of toys for the children who are hospitalized during the holiday,” explained Michelle Gill, owner of Social Salon.   Mrs. Gill went on to say, “Our Christmas spent at Hunterdon Medical Center was one of my favorite because it was 100% holiday spirit, caring, love and togetherness.  The hospital staff was our family that year!”

Suggestions for gifts from age infant to teens are small toys such as action figures, stuffed animals, puzzles, coloring books, colored pencils, crayons.  All toys should be new and do not need to be wrapped.  In this season of giving, please consider helping a pediatric patient feel safer and happier by taking a tag from Social Salon’s Giving Tree.   Donations can also be brought to the Hunterdon Health and Wellness Center in Whitehouse Station.   Social Salon is located in Bishops Plaza, 431 Route 22 East in Whitehouse Station.  The Hunterdon Health and Wellness Center is located at 537 Route 22 East, Whitehouse Station.
