The Northwest Savannah service center has a long-standing partnership with the Willett Children’s Hospital of Savannah. The partnership has grown over the years, allowing the team to celebrate multiple holidays with the staff and families.
The Savannah team sent out the call to Northwest’s 35+ service centers to create and donate Easter baskets for the children at the hospital. The original request was for 60 Easter baskets to be donated to each child to spread some Spring cheer. The request was overwhelmingly met, and the team was able to drop off 92 baskets filled with window clings, crayons and colored pencils, coloring books, small dolls and action figures, and other springtime treats. The team did not donate candy at the hospitals request.
The Northwest team did not want to forget to honor the nursing staff of the Hospital who goes above and beyond every day. Candy and additional treats were donated to the staff as a continued thank you!
It is truly a blessing to be able to partner with the Savannah Children’s Hospital multiple times each year and bring even a small bit of joy into the lives of these children and families. The Savannah team is so thankful to be able to have the opportunity to serve their local community this way, and they are looking forward to the other events and holidays in 2021.
