Euclid Hospital sock hop gives back to the community by way of 487 pairs of socks donated to Euclid public schools
Poodle skirts and root beer floats, rather than the expected scrubs and lab coats, filled the Euclid Hospital cafeteria when the clocks turned back for a 1950s-themed sock hop and employees donated pairs of socks to benefit the Euclid Public School District.
The event, which was held to recognize employees, turned into a way for hospital staff to help others.
“I believe that bringing all of the employees together in an effort to help our local schools is an excellent way to give back to those in need in the community,” said Sue Meeker, Employees Activities Committee coordinator, and organizer of the event.
Sock hop donations numbered more than 485 pairs of socks, in assorted sizes. The socks were presented to the Euclid Board of Education Sept. 30, and will be distributed to students in need.
Located along the picturesque Lake Erie shoreline, Euclid Hospital provides acute and sub-acute hospital care, along with a full spectrum of outpatient services and is home to one of the region's leading rehabilitation and orthopaedic centers.
