Assistance League of Flintridge is working with USC-Verdugo Hills Hospital by donating new clothing and other necessities for patients through the Cañada Auxiliary of Professionals (CAP) Care Kits program. CAP is an auxiliary of Assistance League of Flintridge that for 10 years has provided Care Kits to patients who need new clothing upon discharge. Nearly 100 Care Kits were delivered from June 2013 to May 2014.
“In certain cases, a patient might arrive unexpectedly to the hospital and upon discharge is unable to use the same clothes,” Olga Cedeno, manager of volunteer services at USC-VHH, stated in a news release. “Assistance League thoughtfully saw and filled this need by donating new clothing packets. This great act of caring for others from CAP allows a dignified and respectful discharge for the patient.”
