Agnesian HealthCare Supports Local Food Pantries
Agnesian HealthCare leaders were busy the week of November 14 showing their appreciation to associates and providers at all its locations with the giving of turkeys in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.
“We’re so grateful for everything that our associates and providers do for our ministry, as well as for the patients, residents and families that we serve that we wanted in some small way to show our appreciation,” says Steve Little, Agnesian HealthCare president and chief executive officer. “It gave us a time to connect with the people that make Agnesian HealthCare what it is today and every day.”
However, their giving went beyond that. Local food pantries also benefited from the donation of 290 turkeys, representing a $4,200 donation.
The following organizations received donated turkeys, including Waupun Food Pantry, Ripon Food Pantry, Grace Christian Church/Ruby’s Pantry, Lighthouse Christian Church Pantry, The Salvation Army, and Agnesian HealthCare Adult Day Services and Treffert Center families.
