The Therapies Department at Battlefords Union Hospital is celebrating its 10th Annual Christmas Food Drive!
Each Christmas Holiday Season, the Department places signs and special boxes in departments and offices throughout the hospital, encouraging staff, physicians, and the general public to donate non-perishable food items for needy families.
This year’s campaign runs November 27 – December 8, 2006. Look for the signs and special boxes throughout Battlefords Union Hospital.
This Food Drive lasts only TWO WEEKS, so get in the Christmas spirit and give generously!
The donated foodstuffs are given to the Battlefords Ministerial Association Empty Stocking Fund to be distributed to needy families so that they may enjoy a special Christmas.
Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
Members of the Therapies Department at BUH also get into the Christmas spirit through cash contributions of their own. Rather than exchanging Christmas gifts among themselves, the Therapies staff members contribute money to a fund that is then donated to local, national, or international helping agencies. Past recipients of this generosity have included the Alberta Prairie Fire Relief Fund in 1997; Save the Children fund in 1998; The Battlefords Empty Stocking Fund in 1999 and 2000; The Tien Shen Orphanage in Krygystan in 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004; and World Vision last year. Each agency has received between $175 - $205.
