“CLEAR THE CLUTTER BEFORE CHRISTMAS” FOR THE HAVE A HEART THRIFT SHOP
SAN MARCOS, TEXAS – What did you find buried in the closet while pulling out the holiday decorations? Preloved treasures you’re ready to part with? Central Texas Medical Center Hospice Care is hosting a “Clear the Clutter Before Christmas” donation drive to benefit the Have a Heart Thrift Store December 6-7.
Community members can drop off donations in the CTMC Large Community Classroom (1305 Wonder World Dr., San Marcos, Texas) Thursday, December 6 from 3 to 7 p.m. and Friday, December 7 from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Tax-deductible receipts will be available upon request.
If you cannot make it during the “Clear the Clutter Before Christmas” donation drive, donations are always accepted at the Have a Heart Thrift Store (1313 IH 35 N, San Marcos, Texas).
“Donations to the Have a Heart Thrift Store are so important because the funds raised from the sales allow CTMC Hospice Care to continue providing individualized, high-quality comfort care 24 hours a day, seven days a week to our patients during the final stage of life,” said Allison Hardy, Director of CTMC Hospice Care.
Proceeds from the Have a Heart Thrift Store go directly to CTMC Hospice Care’s Family Grief Center, which provides a safe and comfortable environment to work through and express the feelings associated with losing a loved one. The Family Grief Center offers support groups, as well as individual and family counseling, not only to hospice patients’ families, but also the community at no cost.
The hospital, which originated in 1923 as Hays County Soldiers, Sailors and Marines Memorial Hospital, opened at its current Wonder World Drive location in 1983. The CTMC staff of more than 700 employees works with more than 300 active and consulting physicians to provide quality services to patients and their families. For more than 20 consecutive years, CTMC has been named The Best Hospital in Hays County in the annual “Best of Hays” publication released by the San Marcos Daily Record. In addition to interventional cardiac services, CTMC is a Certified Chest Pain Center and an accredited Primary Stroke Center. CTMC leads the region in da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery and offers a variety of specialty care services including medical imaging, rehabilitation, home health care, hospice, women’s services and more.
