Funds Raised for Harriet\’s Closet

Georgia Military College faculty recently presented a check for $500 to Harriet’s Closet, the focus of their Fall Quarter Community Service Project. Named for Harriet Goldstein Greenhut, the daughter of Jake and Maxine Goldstein and whose life was shortened due to cancer, Harriet’s Closet at Oconee Regional Medical Center provides items for patients undergoing cancer treatment.

Mrs. Maxine Goldstein accepted the donation from Mr. Phil Whigham, GMC professor of history. She thanked the faculty and said that the money would help in keeping the closet filled with toys, stuffed animals, wigs, makeup, clothing, walkers, and much more, all of which are free to those who need it. She announced that Harriet’s Closet will be celebrating a birthday party on January 16th and invites the community to take a tour.

A 1972 graduate of GMC high school, Harriet Goldstein Greenhut was posthumously honored with the GMC Alumni Association Community Service Award in October 2004 for taking the lessons of GMC’s character education beyond the classroom and impacting her family and community in memorable and lasting ways.
