Metro Health – University of Michigan Health and Grand Rapids eco-friendly merchandise agency, Green Giftz, have collaborated on a new hospital gift shop opening on Friday, January 24 at Noon. Green Giftz has been contracted to supply all of the merchandise in the gift shop including apparel, jewelry, cards, snacks, toiletries, unique gifts and locally made eco-friendly items. They will also be managing the gift shop, which is staffed by Metro Health volunteers.
Thanks to a generous donation from John and Linda VanSingel, all gift shop proceeds will benefit the Metro Health Hospital Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, helping meet the health care needs of more than 250,000 people annually. This includes providing assistance for people with limited or no health insurance, Child Life Services for children experiencing hospitalization and funding to promote innovative treatment and compassionate care.
