Promotion of trolley program for hospital

GREENFIELD – The Kiwanis Club of Greenfield heard about the Kiwanis Komfort Kart, a service project for Riley Hospital For Children, at its April 19 meeting.

The Komfort Kart serves Riley’s patients by providing free personal toiletries, snacks, and other items through daily trips to all hospital rooms. Marge Crouch, coordinator of the program, spoke about the impact of the trolley on parents who come to the hospital hoping to return home only to end up staying for weeks with their children. Susan Schwartz, volunteer coordinator for Riley, spoke about the need for regular volunteers who can spend three to four hours distributing items or restocking the cart.
