Adopt a Family 2011 helps 65 families have a brighter holiday

Thanks so much to the more than 60 departments that adopted and donated gifts to 65 UNC Health Care employees and their families this holiday season!

With the help of the many employees who participated, we filled a tractor trailer with gifts, toys, bikes, wrapping paper and gift cards! Additionally, almost $6,000 in cash was donated by employees for employees.

Here's just one of the many expressions of thanks that we have received from adopted employees:

"I have picked up the Care Package from the Adopt-A-Family program that you graciously allowed my family to be participants. I am absolutely at a loss of words for the blessings you and my sponsoring department have bestowed upon my family for Christmas! I have not viewed the gifts yet, but am overjoyed and in awe already! My prayer is that I will be in a position next year to be a blessing to others in need during this time of year. Thank you from the depths of my soul and may blessings rest upon everyone involved in this program!"

Thank you all for once again making the Adopt a Family program at UNC Health Care a great success.
