Giving Back During the Holiday Season

Published: November 17, 2017

During the holiday season our caring Ruth Eckerd Hall staff participated in HEP’s Adopt-A-Family Program. Each of the little elves are to select a gift item from the adopt-a-family tree and will donate the gifts for local families in need. The gifts are collected and donated to HEP, who works with the parents of the families to wrap the gifts, so they can give them to their children on Christmas morning. Gifts are also donated for the parents to enjoy on Christmas morning. Ruth Eckerd Hall has partnered with HEP Empowers for several years and is always willing to help people who are helping themselves.
