National Pen Donates Pens to Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego

Tuesday, May 19th was a special day for the team at National Pen, as we were able to donate 1,000 pens to the team at Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego. Sharp Memorial holds a special place in our heart, as it provides exceptional care to our community, and even to one of our own team members, Dana Sobotka, our Vice President of Digital Marketing.

Of the partnership, Dana says,

“It was truly a full-circle moment for me, as three years ago this time I was immunocompromised while undergoing chemo at Sharp Hospital – and now I got the chance to bring some joy to the heroes that keep us healthy.”

“These beautiful pens were such a boost to our caregivers during a difficult time,” said Jessica Crawford, director of Marketing and Communications at Sharp Memorial Hospital. “We are grateful to organizations like National Pen for honoring our employees, and it was extra special to receive such a meaningful gift from one of our patients.”

We’re so thankful for the opportunity to donate pens for the staff and patients at Sharp Memorial to use, and look forward to more partnerships in the future.
