Annual UnityPoint Auxiliary chicken pot pie sale underway
Members of the UnityPoint Health-Marshalltown Auxiliary are shown making chicken pot earlier this week in the hospital cafeteria kitchen. Last year 5,000 hand-made pies were made with help of hospital staff, and all sold. The goal is the same in 2017. Over the years, sales made up 50 percent of Auxiliary income going back to UnityPoint Health patient care — from pillows for mastectomy patients, to a $10,000 donation to the Cardiac Cath Lab, to family room furniture. Annually, the Auxiliary sponsors several nursing scholarships, manages an employee recognition event, a volunteer recognition lunch, and holds several sales. Prices: Small pie (6-inch) $4.50 each, or 3 for $13. Large pie (9-inch) $8.50 each, or 3 for $25.00. Pick up dates are: Sept. 29 – 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Sept. 30, 8 a.m. to noon, and Oct. 2, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Payment is due when customers pick up pies in UnityPoint Health hospital front lobby. For more information, or to order, contact the UnityPoint Health Gift Shop, 641-753-2706.
