Luke Worrell of Worrell Land Services delivered 36 goodie bags containing bottled water, individually-wrapped snacks and fruit to the Environmental Services department at Passavant Area Hospital.

Because visitor access to the hospital is restricted at this time, all donations of supplies or food to Passavant employees must be pre-arranged by calling Pam Martin at 217-479-5575 or martin.pam@mhsil.com.
