Unitex Supports its Hospital Partners During the Holidays

Posted January 8, 2021 at 11:29 am

Unitex, Elmsford, NY, is continuing to support its hospital partners in a big way. Despite the challenges due to the pandemic, the team at Unitex is making every effort to continue focusing on the positive and is doing this virtually.

The Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy departments at the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital (a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network) are working to help bridge the gap between home and the hospital by providing developmental and age-appropriate activities within the hospital setting. The team at Unitex was excited to help sponsor this initiative by purchasing toys and various gifts to help bring cheer to the kids and their families throughout the 2020 holiday season.

In addition to supporting the Marie Fareri Children’s Hospital, Unitex is taking part in the “You are the Light in the Darkness” winter program at Phelps Hospital in Sleepy Hollow, NY. Unitex’s monetary donation is being used for two special initiatives: the Heroes Tent, a place for the hospital staff to refuel, recharge and renew, as well as a light display, aimed at bringing warmth and light to the Phelps Healthcare Heroes this winter.

“The holiday season is all about giving back and this year is no different,” said David Potack, president of Unitex. “For years we have worked with our partners to create in-person events for their patients and staff, and while we weren’t able to do this like previous years, we were still able to make people smile and that is the most important thing.”

Unitex Healthcare Laundry Services currently operates 11 laundry processing facilities with two new openings coming in 2020-’21 in Lawrence, MA, as well as one garment warehouse. For more information, visit www.unitex.com.
