A big THANK YOU to TCT Board Members Bonnie Geise of SeaFreeze/City Ice Cold Storage, and Patricia Hutchinson of Yusen Logistics (Americas) Inc, for coordinating the 2012 Carla Martin Bandage Drive for Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital!

And, a HUGE THANK YOU to all of our members! Through your generosity, TCT donated a record 4,300 boxes of fun, kid-approved bandages! With an average of 20 bandages per box, that’s a total of 86,000 smiles on kids faces!

Bring Your Fun Bandages!

The Carla Martin Bandage Drive for Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital was officially announced during the February 13 Club meeting. Ms. Barbara Bartolatz Littrell, Community Development Coordinator for Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital was on-hand to talk about the benefits of allowing young patients some control in their treatment even if it is just being able to pick out their bandage.

Ms. Bonnie Geise, from Seafreeze/CityIce and TCT Board Member is the TCT liaison and Bandage Drive coordinator. “The goal is to exceed 2,656 boxes of latex free bandages for this year’s drive” she reported.

All boxes of bandages should be dropped off at the March 13th TCT meeting.

Remembering Carla Martin


It is with great sadness that we inform our members of the passing of Carla Martin. Carla was taken from us much too soon after a tragic accident. We remember her fondly. In lieu of flowers, her family wishes for donations to be made to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
