Parkview Medical Center Employees Step Up to Provide Shoes and Socks for Pueblo's Needy
Parkview Medical Center spent April working to help the less fortunate in the community by collecting socks and shoes for the Cooperative Care center.
Led by Parkview’s Wellness Works department, employees, over the past few weeks at the medical Center, donated 155 pairs of shoes and 390 socks.
The clothing was picked up by representatives of Cooperative Care at the end of the month.
“The donation made by Parkview Medical Center is symbolic of its generosity to the community and it reinforces the commitment Parkview has made to the Cooperative Care Center,” Corey Higbee, president and CEO of the Cooperative Care Center. “They collected an enormous amount of clothing and socks and it will meet a tremendous need in Pueblo.”
The cooperative Care Center helps needy families in a number of ways, primarily through providing sacks of groceries to families who qualify. But the center also has a collections of clothing clients can often take advantage of, including business attire that helps them find appropriate clothing for job interviews.
