Will You Give? Secret Santa Project Benefits Local Families

One of the most admirable aspects of our Anderson Healthcare family is how wonderfully generous it is! Whether it’s donating to food or clothing drives, helping co-workers through a crisis, or giving to victims of natural disasters, our staff members never cease to give.

Our annual “Secret Santa” project is no different.  Over the years we’ve had the privilege to make Christmas a little brighter for local families in need.  Making that happen has been the job of “Head Elf” Amy Grulke and her fellow “elves” in Case Management.   None of these families would benefit without their continued dedication to this project… or yours!   Will you join us this year as a “Secret Santa” to make the season bright for these three families?  Here's what's on their list:

Fabulous While Fighting Clothing Event November 15th

Fighting cancer is hard enough.  Finding clothes that FIT during the fight can be hard, too.

Most patients' weight fluctuate greatly during treatments... causing weight loss or even weight gain.

Since this can be a temporary obstacle for patients, having a FREE alternative to clothing options is greatly appreciated.

Through a clothing drive we've been able to set up a closet of clothes FREE to patients!  

The event will be held Wednesday, November 15th at the Warren Billhartz Cancer Center (Route 162 Entrance).

From 2 - 5 p.m. patients can stop by and "shop" from our "fabulous finds" closet for FREE...
