Herbert-Herman Cancer Center receives blanket donation

What: Sparrow relies on the generosity of the community and our many donors. Members of JCI Lansing -- Junior Chamber International (the former Lansing Jaycees) will deliver 45 blankets they recently created to comfort patients at the Sparrow Herbert-Herman Cancer Center. Group leaders took special safety measures to hand-deliver material to members’ porches so they could create the lap-sized blankets. JCI Lansing provides development opportunities to empower young people to create positive change in the Lansing area. The organization focuses on building leadership skills through community service. Interviews available with Sparrow Herbert-Herman Cancer Center officials and JCI Lansing members.

Where: Lobby of Sparrow Herbert-Herman Cancer Center, 1210 E. Michigan Ave., Lansing. A representative from Sparrow Marketing will meet reporters.

When: Tuesday, Oct. 6, 4:30 p.m.

Additional information: Any reporter or media wishing to attend the event should contact John Foren, Spokesperson, Media and Public Relations, at 517.364.8093 or 517.256.1743.
