SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- An employee at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Springfield is holding a clothing drive for patients.

Terese Jay, a medical social worker, said she started collecting clothes for people involved in car accidents and older people who come in during the middle of the night in their nightgowns and need something to go home in.

Two bins will be located at the entryway of the center’s main entrance through Sunday, and Jay said they’re looking for new or gently-used clothes in all sizes, from babies to adults.

Jay said that in the emergency department they see every type of need, so every donation is welcome.

“Clothing that’s easier for the RN to switch when we don’t know the sizes of patients, sweatpants and anything with elastic, those are really something that we need,” Jay added.

They hand the clothes out at RiverBend, the university district hospital in Eugene and in Cottage Grove.

If you want to donate once the bins are gone, email Jay at tjay@peacehealth.org.
