HRMC Contributes $4,000+ to Salvation Army Christmas Basket
December 23, 2016
Huron, S.D. – The Huron Regional Medical Center (HRMC) board of directors voted to again contribute $4,000 for the Salvation Army’s annual food drive, according to Deb Kuhler, HRMC board chair.
“As a board, we have always felt strongly about the essential work the Salvation Army does for our community,” said Kuhler. “The Christmas Basket food drive is an important program and we are proud to help the Salvation Army provide food and gifts for those in our community who need a helping hand.”
Leanna Tuttle, Captain of the Salvation Army, expressed her sincere appreciation. “We really appreciate the hospital for their help with the Christmas Baskets,” said Tuttle. “This year we were able to help 685 people, which includes 435 children, with baskets which provide not just a Christmas meal, but also enough
food for the family to last through the Christmas and New Year holidays.
“Our goal is to make sure no child goes hungry during the holiday break and that every child has at least one gift under the tree through our Angel Tree program,” said Tuttle. “We could not accomplish that goal without the incredible support from this community.”
In addition to the $4,000 monetary contribution, HRMC employees, medical staff and hospital and Foundation board members support the Christmas Basket program by donating the $15 in turkey bucks they receive as a gift from the hospital at Thanksgiving to the Salvation Army program. In total, $2,510 in turkey bucks were donated to the Salvation Army for their Christmas Basket program.
