Filling Baskets to Fill Buckets

Every day hospitals are busy providing care, but sometimes a Band-Aid isn’t all that is needed. Members of Munsey Park School’s Kindness Club understand this and created baskets to support Long Island area hospitals through Code Lavender, a nationwide program designed to provide emotional support to and relieve stress for hospital workers, patients and family members.

Baskets donated through Code Lavender serve as an emotional pick-me-up and are filled with messages of hope and healing. “You had a WHOPPER of a day,” is one such message that accompanied the little chocolate treats in one of the baskets put together by Munsey Park.

Munsey Park Kindness Club members are pictured with Principal Chad Altman, Assistant Principal Brian Nolan and Jennifer Lippmann, a physician’s assistant with Glen Cove Hospital’s ICU. Mrs. Lippmann and her daughter visited with staff members at the hospital to deliver the baskets.
