WILDWOOD — On Dec. 19, Joanne Carrocino, president and CEO of Cape Regional Medical Center, Tom Piratzky, vice president of marketing and public relations, Julie Paolella, director of volunteers services, Joan Troiano, a volunteer at Cape Regional Medical Center and Carol Maikisch, of Cape Visiting Nurse Association, provided the first grade class at Glenwood Avenue Elementary School in Wildwood with gifts for the holidays.

The December event was the fifth year that members of the hospital received a book, a hand knitted hat and scarf and a pair of gloves or mittens.

“The entire team at Cape Regional Medical Center and Cape Visiting Nurse Association is pleased to provide some holiday cheer to the Glenwood Avenue first graders,” Carrocino said.

Volunteers crafted hand-made scarves and hats for the students and team members of the hospital and the visiting nurse association donated new books, gloves and mittens.

“We began knitting the scarves and hats in September to prepare for this special day,” said Troiano. “About a dozen women generously knitted over 100 scarves and 100 hats. It is one of our favorite projects to help support our community.”
