J.C. Blair President & CEO Joseph Peluso, J.C. Blair Behavioral Health Nurse Manager Cindy Davis with her granddaughter Caydence Dickson, and Santa present gifts to Salvation Army Captain Sharon Harford for their annual “Treasures for Children” campaign. J.C. Blair employees, physicians and board members donated gifts to go to over 250 Huntingdon County children this Christmas season.
250 Children Benefit from J.C. Blair Employee Campaign
J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital employees, along with Santa, presented 250 gifts to the Salvation Army for their 2010 “Treasures for Children” Campaign.
This marks the 14th year that hospital employees, physicians, and board members have donated their own time and money to purchase gifts to fulfill the wishes of local children during the Christmas season. Last year, employees purchased gifts ranging from bicycles and dolls, to books and games for over 180 children in Huntingdon County.
J.C. Blair Behavioral Health Nurse Manager Cindy Davis has been involved with the Salvation Army’s “Treasures for Children” project for over 20 years, organizing a campaign with her previous employer before coming to J.C. Blair. “We’ve always had tremendous support for this campaign from J.C. Blair employees and their families. Their generosity and outpouring of goodwill speaks volumes. All of the initial wish list tags were taken; we had to go back to the Salvation Army to ask if we could help fulfill more wishes!” Davis shares.
