Load 'em up! Move 'em out!







As promised below, more pictures and narrative from Bruce Wahl showing the truck loading for our Holiday Lights gift program: "Here are some photos from today's Holiday Lights activities. At around 3 pm Jacquaetta Hester-Walker started taking the 12 + carts down to the Loading Dock 1 at a time.... They were fairly heavy being that they were overflowing with gifts. We called upon the Service Ambassadors and a few of my Media colleagues. Many hands make light work. We loaded the 25 foot box truck to capacity and sent it on its way. When I returned upstairs to the staging area gifts had continued to arrive. There will be at least one more "smaller" trip out tomorrow AM. I was truly overwhelmed with the amount of gifts and the efficiency with which they are being handled."

Thank you for this wonderfully warming story. Jacquaetta and Rosita spearheaded the effort to process more than 1500 gifts for 300 families; as terrific is the generosity of BIDMC staff and Board who fulfilled wish-lists to make this holiday extra-special. Bruce was a savoir today in galvanizing the media services folks and ambassadors to lend a hand in bringing the gifts to the loading dock. What a GREAT place to work with such compassionate colleagues. Thank you to all!
