Methodist Hospitals’ employees from both campuses joined together once again in the spirit of the holidays to provide gifts to children in need. Employees teamed up with the Salvation Army to donate 250 Angels for their Angel Tree Program, 100 more Angels than were donated last year. This was especially significant this year as the Salvation Army lost a major sponsor and was in need of additional Angels. Each angel represents one child.

This program collects and donates gifts to families with children who would be unable to receive presents on Christmas morning. Hospital staff members received an “Angel Child,” and donated gifts for him or her. The gifts were distributed to the families by the Salvation Army located in Gary, Indiana.
