CNE asking for public’s help to bring holiday cheer to field hospital patients

CRANSTON, R.I (WLNE) – Care New England (CNE) is looking for donations and holiday cards to help spread holiday cheer to those in the Kent field hospital.

Some patients recovering from COVID will be spending part of their holiday in the hospital, or at home in quarantine once discharged.

Because of this, CNE is asking the public to consider purchasing or making holiday cards to send to patients or staff at the field hospital.

The field hospital is also in need of donated items to ensure the best possible environments for patients.

Items they are looking for are:

  • New or Gently used books
  • Crossword, word search, Soduko books
  • New or gently used phone charges
  • Tablets or iPads

Care New England has started equipping patients with tablets with amazon prime.

Cards should be sent to: Kent Field Hospital (ATTN: Todd Brothers) 100 Sockanosset Cross Road, Cranston, R.I. 02920.
