MEDINA – With the holiday approaching, staff at Orleans Community Health decided to participate in Action Angels, a program of Community Action of Orleans and Genesee which provides gifts to those less fortunate.

Tammi Pritchard and Kristin Grose volunteered to organize the efforts for the hospital.

This year, employees of Orleans Community Health employees adopted more than 30 children and families from the community.

“Supporting the children and families struggling financially is something employees of Orleans Community Health have been doing for more than five years,” said Scott Robinson, director of Marketing at Community Partners.

“This program allows us the opportunity to provide a better Christmas morning to children and families in our community,” Pritchard said.

“Seeing our team give back to the community is incredibly humbling,” Grose added. “This is just another example of the OCH team showing us how much they care about the community we serve.”

Between Orleans and Genesee counties, Action Angels provide Christmas gifts for several hundred families each year.
