VIDEO: Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center Hosts Share and Care EventPosted:
CAMDEN - Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center is sharing the gift of caring this holiday season.
As part of the Camden Hospital's Share and Care Event, staff members adopted 79 local families who are in need this holiday season.
The elves, who are made up of employees and physicians, brought all their gifts to the Our Lady of Lourdes Chapel, where they will be wrapped and blessed before they are delivered to the families.
"We celebrate and we collect all the gifts in the chapel and in the auditorium of the hospital and we'll bless the gifts and we will take them out into the community and give them to the less fortunate so that they can have a great Christmas," said Francis Hogan, Nurse Manager.
The hospital has been holding the Share and Care Event for over 15 years and organizers say that they often receive the gift of thank yous from the community.
