Trauma Survivors Network is Accepting Toiletry Items

Bringing a toothbrush is not the first thing you think about when you get the call that a loved one is seriously injured and being treated at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

But these items in travel size — toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, deodorant, soap and shampoo — are needed by friends and family members while they wait in Vanderbilt's Trauma Unit on 10N in Vanderbilt University Hospital.

The Trauma Survivors Network Toiletry Drive is being held throughout December at 10N Trauma. A bin has been set up at the Guest Services Desk there to accept donations. Click here for more information.
