Banner staff receives ‘heartfelt’ donation from local artists

Sun City Grand Clay Arts Club honors efforts

Posted

The Sun City Grand Clay Arts Club presented the staff at Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center, 14502 W. Meeker Blvd., Sun City West, with 440 hand-crafted clay hearts to salute hospital employees battling COVID-19 on the frontlines.

Club members made the one-of-a-kind hearts in their homes as they were quarantined during the past several months, and delivered them to the hospital as part of the club’s “Grateful Hearts” Recognition Award.

According to a club news release, the idea of making hearts for hospital staff was conceived by club member Jan Nolan, who was able to get the other members to turn 225 pounds of clay into meaningful works of art that would help express the gratitude they have for the hospital’s staff.

“We’re so thankful to have received these special gifts,” Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center CEO Sharon Lind stated. “With donations like this, our medical teams can be comforted knowing that people in our local communities are thinking of them and appreciate the sacrifices they are making during this time.”

Prior to quarantine, the club hosted two sales per year featuring members’ wares; one in the spring and the other in fall.
