Methodist Hospitals’ employees from both campuses, Gary and Merrillville, teamed up in the spirit of the holiday season to hold a holiday food drive and provide gifts to children in need. Perishable food items were donated to the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana.

Employees once again partnered with The Salvation Army to donate Angel Tree gifts. This program distributes donated gifts to needy families with children who would otherwise not receive presents on Christmas morning.

Hospital staff members received an Angel Tree tag and donated gifts for a child by gender and age, then the gifts were collected and given out by The Salvation Army in Gary.
