MCHHS receives new baby warmer

BELOIT – The Mitchell County Hospital Auxiliary and the Economy Shop, with the help of Beloit and the surrounding area's generous support this year, has purchased a new baby warmer for the birthing unit at the Mitchell County Hospital Health Systems. 

The Economy Shop is run by volunteers with all proceeds going to the hospital.

The shop are asking that all clothes they receive be sent in good condition. The facility doesn't have means or personnel to launder, mend or repair them and they cannot be sold if received in bad condition. 

The shop no longer accepts computers, printers, scanners, large appliances, furniture, car seats or broken toys and are in the process of making it a more shopable and enjoyable experience for customers.
