Long-term care facilities need toilet paper

Tuesday, March 24, 2020

The Greene County Health Department is putting a call-out to residents to help long-term care facilities with toilet paper.

Greene County Health Administrator Shari Lewis said at least one local long-term care facility is critically low on toilet paper.

Anyone who is able to make a donation can drop the toilet paper at the Linton Fire Department and they will distribute the supplies to the health department. Drop the items outside the door and ring the bell at the fire department.

  • This headline is EXTREMELY MISLEADING!!!! I have checked (and I suggest you do the same in the future) directly with the nursing home that my loved ones are residents. That facility, Glenburn to be exact, has toilet paper. The facility that this is in reference to is in Jasonville. Maybe NEXT TIME, you present complete information!!!!!

    Response by Sabrina Stockrahm, Editor, Greene County Daily World:
    She said ďat least one.Ē Iím glad to hear that one has toilet paper for its residents. This fire department is gracious enough to be the drop off point for the health department rather than having to drive all the way to Bloomfield to the health department to ensure all facilities have what they need.
  • The nursing home in Jasonville they get toilet paper they get it in shipments

  • Does it really matter where the need is? These are people that need a basic hygiene product. Give if you can, that should be the call here, we are all in this together. Be safe.

  • People needs to be thinking about others in this time of need. It should not matter where the toilet paper is needed, long term care or an individual home, those who have hoarded toilet paper should be considerate enough to share what they have. The hoarding could very well be why no one can get what they need to survive! This is hard enough on everyone without people being so inconsiderate of others.

  • Jeez Aunttique why so hateful? She is just forwarding a message from the Greene Co Health Dept. It's not like she's asking for it for her own personal use. In addition, you state that you have loved ones in Glenburn, maybe you should be grateful they are "thinking ahead" in case it gets to the point they do run low and can't get it. SMH
