University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center partners with United Way and Geauga Hunger Task Force to help feed less fortunate.
Each November as a gift for its employees, University Hospitals (UH) Geauga Medical Center purchases about 1,000 turkeys for Thanksgiving. Employees can choose to donate their 13-to-14-pound birds to the seven Geauga County food pantries as part of a community partnership with the Geauga Hunger Task Force and United Way Services of Geauga County.
The turkeys are of special benefit to area families because of their protein value. Last year, UH Geauga Medical Center employees donated about 100 turkeys.
“We’re grateful to all of our employees who donate their turkeys because it really makes a huge difference in the lives of people in need in our region,” says Danialle Lynce, SPHR, Manager, Human Resources, UH Geauga Medical Center.
“At UH Geauga Medical Center, we’re very pleased to be able to strengthen this connection with our community, as well as with the United Way and the Geauga Hunger Task Force.”
“On behalf of the many Geauga County residents in need that will be receiving a holiday turkey for their celebration meals, we thank UH Geauga Medical Center for its continued support,” says Kathleen Munch, Resource Development and Communications Manager, United Way Services of Geauga County. “United Way values its year-round partnership with the hospital and the impact we make together.”
