“Texas Health Cleburne employees are always very generous with various charitable efforts we participate in, but this time our employees far exceeded our wildest expectations,” said Jimmy Frosch, food drive co-chairman and the hospital’s finance officer. “With the individuals across our community hurting from the weak economy this year’s food drive took on an even greater significance. Our employees’ caring hearts don’t just touch their work with each patient, but reaches out beyond our hospital’s walls as well.”
To raise money for the food drive, the hospital sold barbecue for Father’s Day and held various bake sales and ice cream events. Dick Morin, director of materials management for the hospital, co-chaired the campaign.
The human resources department, information technology services, and medical staff all exceeded 200 cans per employee and will receive a pizza party to recognize their contributions. The donations from the food drive will benefit Operation Blessing, Family Crisis Center and Emmanuel Temple Outreach Ministries in Cleburne.
