There’s a new organization in town, and it’s all about helping the local hospital.
The Kindness Krew is a new volunteer group, dedicated to spreading kindness at NHS-Sequoyah, according to group spokesperson, Judy Martens.
Sallisaw’s First Lady and former executive director of the Sallisaw Chamber of Commerce, Martens said the group is “all for a cause; nothing for applause.”
On Tuesday, Oct. 30, the Kindness Krew hosted an employee appreciation breakfast, allowing both hospital shifts to enjoy the meal.
“That’s the first of many projects that we’re going to do,” said Martens, adding that the local hospital has been a passion of hers.
Another project coming soon is decorating the mammography room at the hospital, to make it “more homey” while patients get their 3-D mammograms on some of the hospital’s newest equipment.
Martens said the group, which is in the process of obtaining a 501(c)3, plans more projects in the future.
“We’ll do something at Christmas, taking care of the hospital employees,” she said. “We’ll do several of these kinds of projects and then get into fundraisers.”
