Lend your hands and hearts to help a co-worker this holiday season
The Asante Hands and Hearts program at ARRMC, created after the Almeda fire, is continuing to help Asante families this year. The program is asking hospital departments to sponsor one or more families for the holiday season.
A selection committee will meet Nov. 3 to review the nominations and choose 10 Asante families and two community families to receive holiday blessings.
“This program is not possible without the support of our staff,” said Lorry Shlitter, supervisor for Volunteer Services. Employees may also help to sponsor individually and their donations will be coordinated through the Volunteer Services Department.
“Please do not feel you are limited to submitting the name of only one employee,” Shlitter said. “We realize this has been a difficult year and we want to open the selection process to as many as we can.”
After the selection process, departments will be notified of their adoptive family. A packet will be delivered with a completed wish list and registry information.
Last year, Hands and Hearts brought holiday cheer to 30 families with over $40,000 in gifts, gift cards and cash donations from employees throughout the system.
“We would like to thank our Asante Family for their continued support of this program,” Shlitter said.
