Magazines needed

Volunteer Services is looking for magazines no older than six months and in great shape for a magazine/book cart for inpatients on both campuses. The service is a great way to keep patients occupied during their hospital stays. Volunteer Services will place a sticker over personal information so there is no need to remove or cover your address. Please bring magazines to the Volunteer office on either campus at any time.
