Every year, the state requires insurers, such as Excellus, to make a list of unclaimed checks that are at least 3 years old. If the property is not claimed by the end of August, the money is turned over to the state comptroller.
Hospital volunteer luncheon
UHS Delaware Valley Hospital in Walton recognized its volunteers Wednesday with an appreciation luncheon at the hospital.
The medical center said in a media release that Delaware Valley Hospital Volunteers gave 2,639 hours of service in the past year and donated $22,000 to the Enhance DVH Fund to support the renovation of one patient room into a private suite complete with private bath and shower facilities.
Paul Summers, vice president of finance, told the volunteers that their contributions are extremely important as it becomes harder find the money for capital improvements.
Each year the DVH Volunteers sponsors a coat-giveaway; provides teddy bears to children in the emergency room or having lab work; holds fund-raising, and conducts bake sales and other events. The volunteers also operate a gift shop at the hospital.
