Patient Business Services supports the troops

Jan. 1, 2012

The staff in Patient Business Services has shown their support for U.S. military troops currently deployed by sponsoring a collection drive benefiting Military Moms and Wives, an organization that provides care packages to service men and women serving in a war zone and to their family members at home.

Their efforts started over the summer. Each department in PBS participated by collecting items and decorating their work spaces to show their support for our troops. Thank you cards and photos of the department decorations were provided to the organization to include in the care packages to the troops. The items were collected in October so they could be delivered in time for the holidays.

Items collected included food such as cereal, cookies, crackers, pretzels and lots of other snacks, batteries, lotions, chapstick, hand sanitizers, razors, toothpaste and toothbrushes, soap and many other items.
