Parkview gives back for the holidays


(Pueblo, CO) –  Employees at the Parkview Medical Center helped dozens of families this holiday season through fundraising and toy drives.

The business office chipped in to provide Christmas cheer to more than 30 Pueblo children this year and team members from the physical therapy department help organize staff throughout the hospital to give the the Salvation Army's Angel Trees.

The business office team members contacted Posada to find out how they could help during the holidays and the agency gave them a list of children along with what they might want for Christmas and the team went to work.

The business office staff collected gifts for 31 children. Most of the gifts are destined for children living in a temporary housing project on the city’s South Side.

Team members throughout the hospital also raised more than $2,900 to help fund the angel tree gifts sponsored by the Salvation Army. The donations were able to fill the needs of 100 Angel Tree cards with about $400 left over as a direct donation to the Salvation Army.
