​UPMC Horizon Surgery Department Prepares for Annual Chinese Auction and Canned Food Drive

GREENVILLE, November 20, 2012– The UPMC Horizon Greenville campus operating room, work room, central sterile supply, recovery room, and anesthesia departments, in conjunction with the UPMC Horizon Community Health Foundation, will hold its annual Chinese auction and canned food drive Thursday, Dec. 6, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the cafeteria at the hospital’s Greenville campus. 

 “Our departments have been hosting the Chinese auction and food drive for many years now in lieu of a Christmas party. It is our way of giving back to communities that we serve,” says Nan Peterman, RN, BSN, OR nurse. “We are very excited about this year’s auction; last year we had about 150 items in the auction, and this year is already gearing up to be better than last year. Thanks to all who have supported us in the past and we hope to see new faces this year!”

Tickets for the Chinese auction are $1 for three or 20 for $5. Cash and checks will be accepted. A free ticket will be given for each canned food or nonperishable item donated.

Proceeds from the Chinese auction and canned food drive will be equally divided between the Jamestown Food Pantry, The Good Shepherd Center, Greenville, and Helping Hands in Stoneboro.
