Worby Tribune Holiday gifts brighten U. of la. patients IOWA.CITY — JV>r many years,' civic, fraternal and church groups from oil parts of Iowa have helped warm and cheer .the Christmas holiday for patients at The University of Iowa Hospitals by sending gifts to be distributed on Christmas Eve. Gifts from the organizations as well as from hundreds of individuals "do a tremendous job in helping lift the spirits of the 500 patients who must be hospitalized during the holiday season," says Gordon D. Brown, administrative associate and chairman of the University Hospitals Christmas committee. , Many community brganiza- ttonos donate one or two larger gifts which can be used by patients throughout the year/says Brown, who points out that these larger items are as welcome as boxes of smaller presents. Examples of such gifts given in the past include tricycles, strollers, wagons, bedside radios and record players, I Other appropriate .gift items "tclude toys, handkerchiefs, stationery with stamps, fancy • handwork, hose, scarves, books, shawls, toilet articles, gloves, leather kits, billfolds, and knitting material®. Gifts of cash, which are used to buy presents for certain categories of patients for which not enough gifts were donated are also welcome. Checks or money orders should be made payable to the University Hospitals Christmas Committee Donors are urged not to send food and not to gift-wrap their contributions. Hospital diet restrictions make food impractical, and every gift .must be opened for sorting and then girt-wrapped by volunteers at the Hospitals.
