This year remembering the good things in our lives has been challenging. The team leaders from Stoughton Health’s Excellence Together Program encouraged all employees to participate in a simple act of gratitude during the advent season. They provided employees with a “reverse” advent calendar listing items each day to donate to local food pantries and the Stoughton Health Employee Food Pantry. “Gift boxes” were placed at all the Stoughton Health locations for employees to contribute.
Stoughton Health’s Excellence Together Champion and Vice President of Patient Services Amy Hermes encouraged employees to participate and consider taking part in paying forward to those who may be finding themselves struggling this holiday season. Hermes shared, “Our employees are so appreciative of the outpouring of support we have received throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. They are embracing this opportunity to give back to the community.”
