Date:11/18/2008

MILWAUKEE, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Wisconsin residents demonstrated their desire to be good neighbors during Aurora Health Care's Good Neighbor Day, an effort to collect recyclable and reusable items throughout eastern Wisconsin.

Truckloads of computers, electronics, clothing and old medication were collected during the event Saturday. The items were brought by nearly 1,200 residents to one of 16 collection sites at Aurora hospitals and clinics.

Good Neighbor Day was established to help keep items out of landfills and to collect items that can benefit people who rely on a variety of community agencies for help. Among the items collected during the four-hour event:

    -- More than 1,600 pounds of old medication
    -- Nearly 12,200 pieces of used clothing
    -- More than 600 cell phones
    -- Nearly 430 computers
    -- Almost 600 teddy bears and stuffed animals
    -- More than 1,400 personal care items and new clothing

"In every way, the expansion of America Recycles Day into Aurora's first Good Neighbor Day was a major success," said Kimberly Welch, Aurora senior vice president of corporate affairs. "It was heart-warming to see so many residents brave this cold day to not only be good environmental stewards, but also help a neighbor in need. From the many volunteers who helped organize and work this day to the residents who made multiple trips to drop off items, we saw a wonderful spirit of care and community."

Good Neighbor Day was a collaborative effort involving more than 700 volunteers including local Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, school service groups, community volunteers, Aurora caregivers and others.

Many of the donated items will help women, children and others in the community:

    -- Walkers, crutches and other home medical equipment will be provided to
