Secret Santa Benefits Local Families

December 7, 2017

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:
