The employees and staff at Stones River and DeKalb Community Hospitals raised over $2,500 to purchase Christmas gifts for the teens at Indian Mound Home for Boys located in DeKalb County, Tennessee. Gifts included requested and needed items including shoes, clothes and work boots.
The hospital hosted a pizza party in honor of the boys including a visit from Santa himself. When asked about his gifts, one teen replied, “This is so cool! I got everything I asked for on my list. I can’t wait to get back and try on my new Nikes."
“Of all the things our hospitals do to help the community, this is the event I love the most,” said Director Linda Gagne, “It is such a special time for us as well as the boys.”
“I would like to thank all of the employees for all of the fund raisers and hard work throughout the year to make this happen,” said HR Assistant Jennifer Tramel, “We could never say enough about the good-hearted people who help all year long for this one special day. It warms my heart.”
DeKalb Community and Stones River Hospital have provided much needed Christmas items for Indian Mound boys for many years. Both hospitals would like to thank the community along with their employees for supporting this wonderfu l annual tradition.
