NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans are supporting Saint Thomas Health's Patient Clothing Closet with a donation of official Titans apparel, including polo's, t-shirts, jackets, pants and hats. In addition, the Titans donated a percentage of coats received from the team's annual coat drive conducted last month at LP field.
Frequently, adult patients are discharged from Saint Thomas Health hospitals that do not have any clothing to wear home. This can be because they are homeless, or their clothes had to be cut off upon hospital admission and they simply do not have anyone to bring them a change of clothing. Through this program, a patient in need of clothing is provided clean, laundered clothing from the hospital's patient clothing closet.
"One of our most important missions at Saint Thomas Health is to care for the poor and vulnerable," said Bernie Sherry, President and CEO of Nashville Inpatient Operations, Saint Thomas Health. "We are very excited about the Tennessee Titans supporting our mission and making it possible to provide clothing to those patients in need,"
