Wellington Regional Medical Center helped make Christmas a little brighter for Palm Beach County children in need this holiday season. The hospital donated more than 100 gifts, helping 75 angels as part of the Salvation Army’s annual Angel Tree program.
On Tuesday, Dec. 10, employees and senior administration gathered in front of the hospital’s Christmas tree and loaded gifts onto the Salvation Army truck for delivery to the Salvation Army West Palm Beach center.
Chief Operating Officer Michael Patterson, along with Chief Financial Officer Joseph Paul helped Salvation Army volunteers load all of the gifts for distribution.
“Every child deserves to open a gift waiting for them under the tree on Christmas morning,” Patterson said. “Giving back to the community is really important at Wellington Regional Medical Center, especially around the holidays. There is something very heartwarming about giving gifts to children who would otherwise go without Christmas presents.”
Wellington Regional Medical Center has supported the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program since 2007.
