Showing our Community A Little Love
Sometimes it’s the smallest things that make the biggest difference. A little bit of compassion and caring can go a long way. This past month, Network Health employees have worked together to show local community organizations our support.
On Valentine’s Day, Network Health’s Vice President Council (VPC) invited all 400 employees to attend a pancake breakfast to help raise funds for St. Joseph’s Food Pantry. The VPC donated their time and supplies to prepare pancakes, sausages, fruit and more. It was a fantastic way to start a cold day for employees, plus 100 percent of the proceeds went to St. Joes.
A special thanks to Clarissa Azcueta-Cox, Keith Bell, Chris Buel, Rory Donohue, Tom Hitchcock, Rema Momberg, Tim Riley, Chuck Rynearson, Colleen Singh, Manji Singh, Jessica Vander Zanden, Josh Weisbrod, Scott Wilie.
Together they raised over $1,000 for St. Joseph’s Food Pantry.
Another way Network Health associates are giving back this month is by participating in the Help for the Homeless drive. Each year, Network Health participates in the month-long event by collecting hygiene and cleaning items not covered by Food Share (also known as food stamps).
Local shelters are in need of personal care items such as diapers, soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrushes, toothpaste, feminine care and more. This year marks the 10th year of the Help for the Homeless drive. Since The Family Radio has started this drive, they have been able to collect nearly $3 million worth of hygiene items. Network Health has been a proud partner of their efforts.
If you would like to contribute, make sure to look for the Help for the Homeless bins. They are available at local retailers and also at Network Health’s main office, 1570 Midway place. The drive ends Sunday, March 11.
